"Let Your Voices be Heard!" 


By Danielle Douglas, The Queens Connection Team

Over the past fifteen years, there has been a focus on the downtown area of Jamaica. As a result, there has been significant public investment. Major investments include the $350 million AirTrain terminal that connects Jamaica to JFK Airport; an expansive rezoning in 2007 that promoted density around the AirTrain terminal, a $153 million commitment from the City of New York through the Jamaica NOW!

Action Plan, and a $10 million investment commitment through the Downtown Revitalization Initiative from New York State.  As a result of the public investment activity,  there has been over $1 billion of planned or completed private investment, leading to more than 1,500 new apartments, 2,000 hotel rooms, and 200,000 square feet of commercial space completed and pending in the downtown area.

In addition to the economic development activity taking place in Downtown Jamaica, John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport will also be undergoing a major renovation which will be a $10 billion dollar project over a (10) ten year period. The JFK Project has the potential to have a major impact on our community  as a whole for generations to come.

Southeast Queens Companies Lead In Recapturing The Global Multibillion Dollar Black Hair Care And Beauty Supply Market

IBI BEAUTY SUPPLY STORE, 8 YEARS STRONG AND STILL GOING

Located on 200 Street and Linden Boulevard, IBI Beauty Supply, is just one of the beauty supply stores located in Southeast Queens. This black owned beauty supply store is merely steps away from residential homes, beauty salons, a barbershop, a laundromat, Golden Krust, Innovations in Creative Arts, and many other commercial businesses. As I was waiting to interview, Brigite Bolling Emmanuel, about the success of her business, several customers entered the store in search of various items such as; face creams, hair extensions and hair wigs.

Despite having an assistant in the store, Ms. Emmanuel engaged her customers, maintained the cash registry, and displayed excellent customer service. Ms. Emmanuel grew up in the neighborhood and is an Andrew Jackson, High School alumni. After working as an IT Technician for 20 years, Ms. Emmanuel and her husband bought the building, which is now IBI Beauty Supply in 2005. Since establishing ownership of the building, tenants have moved out, the building was renovated and in 2010, IBI Beauty Supply was born. 

Ms. Emmanuel calls herself fortunate, because while other beauty supply stores has opened and closed, eight years later, IBI is still going strong.  Since opening her store, Ms. Emmanuel identified obtaining contracts from hair suppliers as a challenge.

Since most of the hair suppliers are Asians, they are more likely to support other Chinese or Korean owned beauty supply stores, which have been popping up in predominantly black neighborhoods. Nevertheless, Ms. Emmanuel persisted in solidifying her hair contracts.

Ms. Emmanuel plans to keep the store open for the next 10 years and smiled as she said, “there’s nothing better than working for yourself.”  Ms. Emmanuel does not have an online presence but markets the business in the neighborhood newspapers, flyers, T-shirts, and promotions.

Ms. Emmanuel has also prepared gift bags for events such as autism walks and donated to Bowlin 4 Colon Cancer. For anyone looking to open a beauty supply store, Ms. Emmanuel recommends owning the building as she had seen at least four black owned beauty supply stores become extinct due to steep rents.

As I was wrapping up my interview with Ms. Emmanuel I was curious to know what “IBI” stands for.  Ms. Emmanuel stated the I stands for Ike, Ms. Emmanuel’s husband, The B stands for Brigette and the I stands for Ikea, Ms. Emmanuel’s daughter.  For your hair care needs, consider stopping in to shop at this black owned beauty supply store located at 200-13 Linden boulevard, St. Albans, NY 11412.  There are more Black owned beauty supply stores in the area and a national source that we cover after the sponsors messages below...

A Chance For A Historically Black College & University To Rocket STEM Programs


Cincinnati, OH  -- The nonprofit Base 11 has received a $1.5 million gift to improve diversity in the aerospace talent pipeline.

With the money, Base 11 will fund a grant to one Historically Black College or University (HBCU) to develop a hands-on, experiential rocketry program. This new initiative was announced Sunday at the bi-annual gathering of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity, known as The Boulé, the oldest predominately African American fraternity in the world.

The commercial space industry is expected to become a $2.7 trillion economic sector in the next 30 years, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Yet the industry faces challenges in recruiting a diverse workforce.

"The African American workforce and entrepreneurial community was largely left behind by the tech boom in Silicon Valley, and we don't want to see the same thing happen with the commercial space industry," said Landon Taylor, Base 11 CEO. "This grant will equip an HBCU with the seed capital and human capital needed to build a robust, long-term student rocketry program that can work in concert with industry to develop in-demand aerospace talent and launch new innovations that will harness space as the new frontier."
