Entrepreneur and Afro-Latina activist
Hometown: Detroit, Mich.
Bianca Kea is a 29-year-old from Detroit who saw little Afro-Latina representation in her community growing up. This led her to form the brand “Yo Soy AfroLatina” to shed light on the beauty and magnitude of the Afro Latina experience and create a space where the culture is celebrated. The entrepreneur has also made trendy, empowering products like hats, mugs, and t-shirts that highlight the beautifully diverse culture of Afro Latinas.
In honor of Latinx Heritage Month, In The Know is highlighting changemakers who are impacting the world through cultural advancement, community leadership and entrepreneurial innovation. See all of our honorees here.
