Akilah Lawrence & Yaszmin Belton
Welcome! Thank you for visiting blackwomenonly.com . A platform made exclusively for black women to elevate. Offering merchandise, eBooks, workshops + more ! Akilah Lawrence and Yaszmin Belton are sisters by spirit and goals aligned at "Hello". In 2017, these two black queens served on the executive board of the Black Student Union at the Community College of Philadelphia catapulting their passion for empowering the community.
The focus on black women is inspired by personal experience and congregating with an array of black women who also shared the same passion and values.
Akilah and Yaszmin quickly realized that a sacred space is needed for the black woman community. As space where we can speak our language, learn from one another and empower what defines the black woman.
Akilah is a phenomenal writer/poet, stylist, media personnel. Yaszmin is a extraordinary host/ speaker and producer. Alongside their natural talents they are also mothers.
