Shannette Prince is a connector, business owner, and mother of two Brilliant Black Boys. When Shannette and the oldest of her Brilliant Black Boys traveled to Ghana in 2017, both were transformed and knew they wanted to give back but not through a typical charity.
Shannette understood the artisans in Ghana who make the backpacks needed accesses to more economic opportunities in order to grow. She founded Africa On My Back as a social enterprise that uses a portion of its proceeds to fund study abroad opportunities for Brilliant Black Boys while simultaneously helping to grow small businesses and create jobs in Ghana, West Africa.
Shannette is a graduate of both Texas Southern and Florida A&M University. She has worked in the journalism industry as a television news producer and writer as well as in the nonprofit industry in fundraising and public relations.
