“After interviewing so many brilliant men over the past few years for the ‘In His Shoes’ series, it has really been on my heart to bring this element of the blog to life. The truth is, our men don’t celebrate themselves enough and they most certainly aren’t recognized as often as they deserve to be by the media and in our communities. It’s time for a paradigm shift and this is my small, but hopefully impactful, contribution,â€ said Renae Bluitt, creator of InHerShoesBlog.com. The event will also feature tastings by black women-owned businesses, BCakeNY and SheChef Inc.
