Black Entrepreneur Experience

Sep 5, 2018

Black Butterfly Beautiful is a subscription box created by 17-year-old Journi Prewitt to empower, uplift, and encourage young people of color to embrace who they are. 

These monthly boxes are curated based on subscriber age, gender and the month’s theme featuring books and other accessories from black-owned brands to help address underrepresentation, uncover black history, and provide inspiration.

Fun Facts about this Young Entrepreneur: She is a senior and honor roll student at Power Center High School, as well as a fellow in the Bridge Builder Change program through Bridges USA and a Spring 2018 Finalist of L.I.T.E Memphis. 

She is an avid volunteer, having accumulated more than 2000 volunteer hours during her middle and high school career. 

Featured in publications including the Huffington Post, The Memphis Business Journal, NewsOne, Black America Web, Blavity, MadameNoire and Black Enterprise. 

The Memphis City Council honored me with a resolution for my entrepreneurship and community contributions as founder of "Black Butterfly Beautiful", a monthly subscription box for children of color ages 4 - 19.

Her plans include attending college and double majoring in Education and Interior Design with a minor in Gender and Race Studies. 

Upon completion of her degree, she will  attend graduate school, teach in an elementary school and continue to grow and evolve her brand, Black Butterfly Beautiful.
