Renee’s Corner: My Favorite Femme Pioneer in Black History

This month has been filled with so much pride and recognition for people of color, especially women of color (#WakandaForever)! As a black woman in business raising African American children, I admire the strength, grace and humility black women display as we face the challenges of our society — formerly and presently. As we wrap up Black History Month, I want to take some time to highlight and celebrate a noteworthy woman in Black history and easily one of my favorites: former First Lady of these United States, Michelle Obama. It has been said that “behind every strong man is Read More

Renee’s Corner: 2017…The Year in Review

2017 has been teachable and outspoken. It has been triumphant. I think many would agree it’s also been a “wild ride.” Uncle Funky’s Daughter has undergone many changes and has strived everyday this year to elevate, expand and include curly girls everywhere. As we bring 2017 to a close, I wanted to share some of my most memorable moments and happenings from the past year: We started the year off in protest for things as important to us at the Women’s March in January, and are still pumping our fists (and moving our fingers) to be heard (or read). Millions around the Read More

Happy Thanksgiving Funky Junkies! I am definitely in the holiday spirit this week (finally)! Between counting up the guest list for Thanksgiving Dinner, planning activities for the kids that will keep them busy, and checking off the early tasks of executing the menu (just made my pound cake), I not only have a lot to be thankful for, but I’m convinced I’m ready to do some of the thanking and play Mrs. Claus in the coming weeks. There are dozens of “holiday shopping tips” articles out there and brands are doing backflips to try and catch our attention for those Read More

Renee’s Corner: Supporting Your Friend with Breast Cancer

A good friend recently called me and shared that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Like too many others, her life was immediately turned upside down as she began her battle. My first reaction was shock, then sadness — fighting off tears to stay strong for her while chatting with her on the phone. My next reaction was to join her in battle mode. There are many articles that give advice and strategic pointers for helping someone through her battle with breast cancer, but even with all the “strategy” and statistics, it never feels as easy or as effective Read More

Renee’s Corner: We Are #HoustonStrong

For those of you who may not know, Houston, TX has been home to the Uncle Funky’s Daughter brand since inception. We have a long history in this city, and we are very proud to call it home. Just a couple of weeks ago, Hurricane Harvey took Houston by storm. In the days leading up to the hurricane, we prepared our Houston-based operations for the storm, but never did we imagine the damage it would cause to our beloved city. As the storm made its wrath on our city, we were part of the first wave of deliveries to the Read More
