Black Entrepreneur Experience

Sep 12, 2018

The Kid Griot, Kalimah McKeaver is the brilliant teen on a mission to educate her clients about African Heritage through the creation of fun, colorful, and engaging products from her craft design firm. 
As a kid entrepreneur, clay sculptor, and teen historian, Kalimah started her trek as a young artisan entrepreneur at the age of 6, with a lemonade stand. Growing in thought and creativity with Dinkra Stylez, she was commissioned by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art to conduct a workshop on how to make her handcrafted bowties. As a youth entrepreneur Ambassador for the Baltimore Children’s Business Fair, she presented her business and showed the correlation between science and the sculpting process of her craft.

The entrepreneurial journey has been fruitful for this young business visionary. She was accepted into the YEA (Young Entrepreneur Academy), a nation academy geared towards helping young entrepreneurs succeed, featured on WUSA9 DC News for the success of her entrepreneurial endeavors and aspirations, has a Pop Up shop at the Congress Heights Arts & Culture Center in Washington, D.C. and ranked as a TOP 5 finalists, at the TOFI International HERs Ownly Pitch Contest in Atlanta, GA. 


With a strong pitch game, Kalimah had the distinct honor of being selected to work with The Home Shopping Network (HSN), after she pitched her products during the American Dreams Academy in Washington, DC.


Kalimah’s future aspirations include, helping other young entrepreneurs fulfill their goals and dreams. She says, “It motivates me when I help other kids rise and realize their amazing potential.” With a love for STEM, she is currently brainstorming ideas, in hopes of developing a business plan that will allow her to combine her love of architecture, engineering, archaeology, and food chemistry into a thriving and successful business. “There are some many cool things to learn and explore, why limit myself to just one?”
