How she became the first black woman to own a Tequila company
Today is the first day of Black History Month, a month dedicated to remembering the many black Americans who have helped shape the world we live in. In honor of that, we are kicking it off with a story about a local woman who is making her mark in history. Nayana Ferguson is the first black woman to co-own a tequila company, but it was not something she initially saw for herself. They both developed a love of tequila and decided to study it and learn all about it. He said he wanted to own a tequila company, but laughed it off as impossible.
