Their struggles and sacrifices deserved to be told. In celebration, I found a source from Instagram created by the user @ubrannativeera where it talks about artists and businesses to follow. If you have social media, please give this page a view and follow and check out the post for all artists mentioned. I will be mentioning a few:
