About

Hi! I’m Raven SoRay, and I

promote Black Owned Brands!

Call me Ray and Welcome to my blog! I am a 29 year old single mother of two with wild ambitions! I aspire to build a community that reflects the beautiful experiences, contributions, and accomplishments of black owners and entrepreneurs. My mission is to promote more black owned brands. I created this blog because I wanted to learn more about African American art, Black ownership, and Black history. My ambition is to become a leading influencer that represents black owned brands. I look forward to meeting, reviewing, and promoting brands from hundreds of black artists and black designers.  Here you will find inspiration and hopefully collaborate with other hard working beings as talented as you!

THANK YOU!

To every single person who reads my blog; whether it’s one time, or every single day, Thank you! To everyone who has taken the time to tell me how much they appreciate my ideas, Thank you! Sharing your ideas is also very important to me, so Thank you so much. Thank you for your support and keep asking me questions. 

REPRESENTATION MATTERS!

When people of different ethnicity and races view art that depicts the humanity of black people, they may come to have some compassion and understanding of the black experience.”

by Shantay Robinson

PRODUCT PLACEMENT MATTERS!

“To some extent, ethnic art (including film and literature) has been recognized as an empowering tool for minorities. Latino and African-American advocates have consistently pushed for the inclusion of content reflecting the lives and struggles of people of color in art and at school. But while these stories have gradually made it into the market, they have nonetheless preserved their ethnic labels. For example, movies with African-American casts are usually labeled as ethnic films rather than American products more broadly. Is this a problem? Absolutely. Labeling Latino-oriented books as ethnic products makes it almost impossible to normalize these people’s experiences. When material gets segregated this way, it loses its potential to teach larger lessons for people of all races.”
