Renee Marshall-McKinley, founder of KYSS, a line of natural bath and body products, celebrated her birthday recently with a colorful call to action. “I wanted a way to celebrate and showcase women after I saw a picture of a beautiful Black woman wearing bright pink from head to toe.”
Renee planned for a monochrome birthday photo shoot on the steps of East Orange, NJ City Hall, and within three weeks, ladies came from all over to participate, she explains. “Some I’ve known since kindergarten, some I’ve met through my entrepreneurial journey, church, friends of friends, and even my middle sister. We laughed, we slayed, and we promised to stand together as sisters! MyKyss.com
