Juneteenth is an annual holiday observing the end of slavery in the U.S. and marks the day, June 19, 1865, when news of emancipation reached people in the deepest parts of the former Confederacy in Galveston, Texas. Every day, but especially today, we want to show our support for #LSUAlumni Black-owned businesses. Learn about some amazing LSU Alumni Black-Owned businesses below.
Brunch for the Soul
Owner: Cynthea Corfah ('17 BA Mass Communication)
Brunch for the Soul is a women's wellness group that connects women through in-person and virtual events, book discussions, volunteering meet-ups and social media networks. It empowers, educates and inspires women to be their fullest and holistic selves through self-love and self-care practices.
"I wanted to give all women a space to feel seen, valued and like they had a seat at the table." -Cynthea Corfah
Brunch for the Soul was founded in October 2017 when Cynthea held the first brunch at her home in downtown Baton Rouge.
"To me, being a Black LSU alumna means I strive for excellence, break stereotypes, and am not afraid of standing alone. By earning my degree from LSU as a Black woman, I feel like I made history." -Cynthea Corfah
