Meet the Allens
Gerrard and Racheal Allen are second generation serial entrepreneurs, former educators and creatives at heart. On a mission to authentically curate safe, Black spaces, they dreamed of a place where artists, culture bearers and small business owners could converge to create community. Gerrard is a poet, artistic curator and Ph.D candidate, while Racheal is a highly sought after operations consultant, coach and speaker. Since marrying in Beijing, China, they love traveling the world and checking out thrift stores and museums in every city they visit.
