â€œAfter interviewing so many brilliant men over the past few years for the â€˜In His Shoesâ€™ series, it has really been on my heart to bring this element of the blog to life. The truth is, our men donâ€™t celebrate themselves enough and they most certainly arenâ€™t recognized as often as they deserve to be by the media and in our communities. Itâ€™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.
