We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Winnie and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jessica, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind the success of MN Black Box is the relationships we have built with our partner vendors and our guests.¹

What should our readers know about your business?
MN Black Box has financially suppprted and promoted over 100 MN based micro Black businesses. One thing that sets us apart is we do complimentary marketing for the businesses that we feature in our monthly box. I want the world to know that it is vital to shift spending, be thoughtful and intentional about where and with who; you spend your money.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to ShoutOut; Tangible Thoughts and MAC House both Minneapolis based collectives that provide safe Black spaces for artists, creators and Black businesses.
