The Morgan Angelique Show will not only inspire viewers but educate them in the fields of (but not limited to): beauty, fashion, health/wellness, financial literacy, and more.
Herald Beauty was founded by Morgan Angelique Owens in partnership with The Cincinnati Herald. The Cincinnati Herald is an award-winning newspaper. Established in August of 1955, The Cincinnati Herald is the longest running African American newspaper in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Herald’s primary purpose as a newspaper is to take the general news as it relates to the black community and tell what that really means for the community.
Herald Beauty serves as a hub for minority women to be educated and encouraged to enhance their confidence and make them feel more powerful through beauty(hair, skin and cosmetics). If you google search beauty, minority women do not pop up. We shouldn’t be an add on – we should be included in the narrative. Minority women carry a billion dollar spend and yet are often left out of the beauty conversation whether in print, online or social media. No More.
