Hello to all! Here at Melanated Mentality we are a Black Owned company and movement! We provide Black history facts, Black history blogs and Black pride products for the people of color community. It is our job to know our own history and heritage; as such, it is my goal to assist people in doing just that . My store aims to teach as many people as possible about the accomplishments and successes of people of African heritage!
My name is Brittny Thompson and I started Melanated Mentality because one day I found myself curious about my family history and Black History overall. I’ve spent many years in school to obtain a Master’s Degree, yet I was left feeling a sense of emptiness because in today’s modern world, conventional schools teach only what they want us to know about America’s history. I noticed there was a huge lack of Black History that was not being taught in schools. I struggled because I did not know important role models and figures within my own culture. Hence, I wanted to create a place where people such as myself could go to learn and feel good about themselves.
You can follow us on Facebook and Instagram at Melanated Mentality for daily doses of history and cultural awareness.
We live in a time-consuming society and many of us may not have the time or money for higher education, especially if there is a family to take care of. I offer a space where we can learn something new each and everyday and a place for products that we can wear to or use to represent who we are and where we come from.
I discovered that life can be enhanced with even learning one new fact per day. Knowledge and awareness are what gives us our power.
I appreciate each and every of you from all cultures and backgrounds! Together we can absolutely go even further!
