Offer your warmest welcome to new member Cherrika Fauntleroy!

Cherrika FauntLeroy is the CEO of Bring Em Back, a Christian ministry with a mission to bring as many souls back to Jesus through relationship building. Bring Em Back was created when Cherrika found out that her Son did not believe in Jesus. Cherrika feared that her son’s disbelief would cause something bad to happen to him. As a result, she Immediately began to research the life of Jesus, determined to find the answers to provide her son with the clarity that he needed. Cherrika’s son came up with the original design based on the knowledge of who he now believes Jesus is. The significance of the hands in this design represents someone reaching out, the skulls symbolize lost souls, and the negative judgment people have placed on skulls represents the way people saw Jesus. Cherrika shares the message of Jesus using the story behind the development of the ministry using merchandise. There are currently 7 t-shirt styles available for purchase on her website.

✨ New Member Welcome✨

It’s a great day to welcome Jeanette Prophly to the Black BRAND network!

Affectionately known as Jetty, Jeanette Prophyl is the founder and CEO of the Black Owned Black Operated Collective or B.O.B.O. for short. B.O.B.O. is a manufacturing collective and brokerage for Black-owned product-based businesses looking to grow their distribution. Through their supply chain network, the company certifies the businesses within the collective as Black-owned, helps them scale up their production, and markets them to large retailers and small to midsize companies looking for diversity, equity, and inclusion procurement.

Jetty says, “I believe with my whole heart that nothing is random. Every person I meet, every experience I have, and everything I learn is placed in a Rolodex that can be used later on to solve bigger problems. So my purpose on this planet is to explore and take in information in order to put things back together much better than they were before”.
