Multimedia journalist. CEO. Founder. @ItsReallyNana is a force and the newest member of the Bourbon Board. She began @EveryStylishGirl to connect and advance women of color in media and fashion—and she’s just getting started.

“I’m incredibly passionate about opening up more inclusive spaces for Black and Brown women to advance in various creative industries. I find the Bourbon Board to be a tremendous support system for helping me create more job opportunities and funding for WOC,” she says.

Erika Harrison first began @BlackGirlsWhoBrunch as a way to showcase Houston’s vibrant food scene. “I recognized that my voice/experiences as a Black woman were missing in so many aspects of the food and beverage industry—what we like, what atmosphere, or the vibes that are important to us,” she says.

Since then, her blog has transformed into a space for Black professional women to come together and share restaurants worldwide.

Let us raise a glass to Erika and her many efforts.
Before we close out the month, let’s toast to #BlackHistoryMonth by shining the spotlight on our #BourbonBoard members in the Black community that are making waves in the bourbon industry.

@JovelRoystan is an actor, style architect, and bourbon connoisseur. “Black history—and the stories of all minority and marginalized groups—is such an important part of painting the picture of what America is today. And not just the painful parts, but the exciting, inspiring and surprising parts as well. Black hands have touched so many parts of culture, business, and art across the globe, across centuries,” he shares.

Join us as we raise a glass to Jovel for what he’s done and what he’ll go on to do in the world of bourbon.
