Unapologetically Us, launched in 2014, is a lifestyle brand and online community designed for black women. In this digital space, the platform is to responsibly inform, foster creativity and engage in thoughtful dialogue. Valerie Robinson is the Founder and Editor-in Chief of Unapologetically Us. Not seeing many safe havens geared toward black women, she decided to create one that is not only reliable, but relatable and genuine. Valerie is an award-winning photojournalist and writer whose work spans multi-generational platforms. Read our interview with her below.
