“I see this love in all of you.”

This October issue marks four years since we began working on what would become SoulVision Magazine. BK Fulton, Queon “Q” Martin, Emmanuel “Manny” Taveras and I worked remotely trying to figure out how we could launch the magazine in December 2018. What you see today is the result of sacrifice, hard work, perseverance, and dedication. In our cover story this month, BK Fulton captures it perfectly when he says love is at the center of what we do. 

I see this love in Reba Hollingsworth, who co-authored the book Lipstick and Legacies with five other women to spread her wealth of knowledge. I see it in Kelly Jackson, who has dedicated her life to her Creole heritage, and Danny Boy’s will to become a household name after many personal and professional tribulations.  I see it in the support around David Gresh’s recovery, one of CARITAS’ success stories. I see it in Charlie Lewis, who goes beyond his work as a real estate broker to enrich people’s lifestyles. I see it in chef Indeed who gives back to his community through the culinary arts. I see it in Carl Maxie Brashear, who even after his left leg was amputated, still persevered to become the first African American master diver in the U.S. Navy. I see this love in all of you. 

We set out to create a platform for those who are not given their flowers. Take the lessons presented in these stories as values to enrich your life and others. You get a new look when you have SoulVision! 

What you see today is the result of sacrifice, hard work, perseverance, and dedication.”
