Innovative Supplies, a Black-owned webstore, is run by 27-year-old single mom Nneka. An aspiring history teacher, Nneka started Innovative Supplies with a collection of notebooks and apparel that showcase both modern and historic moments in Black culture featuring visual art by Black artists.

Among the standouts of the collection is a notebook featuring a drawing of Tupac Shakur wearing an “I Am Sandra Bland” t-shirt, as well as a notebook featuring variations of the viral Michael Jordan crying meme. 

According to the Innovative Supplies website, Nneka’s goals for the business are to build revenue in the Black community and to provide job opportunities for local minority youth.
