For our last success story of 2021, we’re catching up with the brilliant April Showers, first featured on our blog mid this year. April showed us how she grew her brand, Afro Unicorn, and developed a strong community around it. Since then, April has achieved what many can only dream of: A brand partnership with Walmart, the largest retailer in the USA! As a merchandise and clothing brand, April created Afro Unicorn to empower and inspire women of color to pursue business opportunities. Having Afro Unicorn products on the shelves of such a massive company as Walmart is an enormous cause for celebration for us all. It’s also a significant win for a community-based brand focused on representation and pride in one’s identity.
