Black Teen’s Plant-Based Beauty Brand to Be Sold at Target

Zandra Cunningham, 18, has partnered with Target to sell her award-winning eponymous skincare line nationwide in celebration of Black History Month.

According to Black News, Cunningham’s company, Zandra, focuses on social good and uses STEAM & Entrepreneurial education to empower girls and women. The beauty line consists of 50 chemical-free skin care products. Target will sell the hand and body lotion, exfoliating sugar scrub, and lip and body balm.

To celebrate her exclusive deal with the department store, Cunningham designed the “Treat Yo Self” gift box set.

“I am so excited to offer my unique brand of American-made yuck-free products in an exclusive gift box designed specifically for Target,” Cunningham said in a statement.

“This is yet another dream come true for me,” she said. “I am working hard to pave the way for other indie brands with teen CEOs. My journey hasn’t been easy but it will forever be worth it. I am on a mission to shatter the status quo, and with partners like Target, I am making that happen.”

Cunningham and her team are working to add facial products to their line.

Zandra Beauty can be purchased from 707 Target stores across the United States.

NEW YORK: CHINESE IMMIGRANT SOLD HOT DOGS MADE WITH REAL DOG MEAT

“Our chests are so far out, in terms of pride,” says Jay Jackson, the great-grandson of Albert Jackson, who became the first Black postman in May 1882. “It’s something we were hoping would come together and it’s now at fruition. We’re so very proud.” He credits the Toronto Local of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), particularly Mark Brown, for lobbying Canada Post for several years to include Albert Jackson in its Black History series. Launched in 2009, the series has included trailblazers Viola Desmond, Lincoln Alexander, Kathleen ‘Kay’ Livingstone and Mathieu Da Costa. “It has been a long fight and we are pleased that Albert Jackson will finally get the prominence he deserves,” said Brown in a statement. “This is great news.” The current issue of Details, a Canada Post magazine for collectors, reveals Jackson is the 2019 Black History Month stamp in a sneak peak of what to expect next year. Born a slave in Delaware, around 1856, Albert Jackson was one of nine children. After two brothers were sold, and his father died, his mother Ann Maria Jackson fled in 1858 with her seven children to Philadelphia, where African-American abolitionist William Still ran a station of the Underground Railroad, helping fugitive slaves get to Canada. The family settled in Toronto. In 1882, when many Black men worked as labourers or in the service industry, Jackson landed a government-appointed job as a letter carrier. But on his first day, white postmen refused to train him because he was Black, so he was reassigned to hall porter. The incident sparked headlines in newspapers. On May 17, an article in The Evening Telegram described Jackson as “the obnoxious coloured man,” saying he elicited “intense disgust of the existing post office staff.” Two days later an editorial in that paper noted, “Objection to the young man on account of his colour is indefensible … Taxes are not made a penny less to a man because he happens to have dark skin.” Albert Jackson shown here in a group shot of Toronto Letter Carriers.
