Sophisticate’s Black Hair goes beyond beauty to turn the spotlight on inspiring women of style and subtance. This is an excerpt from our regular Beauty Insider feature.




As the Founder and Executive Director of The HistoryMakers, Julieanna Richardson has made it her life’s work to preserve, develop and provide easy access to the largest archive of African-American oral history, as told by some of the community’s most iconic figures. In addition to this groundbreaking initiative, Richardson holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School, and resides on the Honors Council of Lawyers for the Creative Arts and the Comcast NBC Universal African American Diversity Council. “I believe we should all have faith in ourselves and our abilities. Involvement in a variety of activities helps build confidence and develops your skill base.”

“My message for young people is, work hard and reach for your dreams. Stretch yourselves; go beyond your comfort zone. Do not allow the fear of failure to limit your life.”
