Journi D'Khaos Prewitt is a Memphis-based teen entrepreneur working to empower black youth by helping them realize their potential. At the age of 16, she noticed the lack of interest many black kids and teens have in reading, the overwhelming under-representation of African Americans, and the self-esteem issues rooted in not realizing their value and rich history, so she set out to develop a solution to these problems with Black Butterfly Beautiful.
