Keyonna | Lawrence & Larimer
For me, being black in Denver is about building and sharing the city’s history while creating new experiences and memories. It’s about sharing our journey as entrepreneurs with our community to push the culture forward.
As the co-owner of Lawrence & Larimer, being black in Denver is also about educating the world through style, which I attribute to my family circle, which is full of strong, beautiful, and talented black women from Denver. To see them together was an event itself. Not only did they dress to the nines – big hats, fancy shoes, swag rags – but they also had a poise about them. They were cultured. Full of love. Laughter. Life. Naturally living in themselves. Unapologetic. Free. For me, it was permission to go off into this world and be the best version of myself. They were my black in Denver experience and where I first witnessed #blackgirlmagic.
