Salima Visram is the 23-year-old entrepreneur behind the Soular, a backpack company equipped with solar panels, which allow children who don’t have access to electricity in rural parts of Africa to study at night without having to use an expensive and carcinogenic kerosene lamp. Soular will be launching a new one-for-one model today, through the sale of trendy backpacks on HSN in collaboration with Disney, alongside their new movie, Queen of Katwe, which is set in rural Uganda, where the kerosene lamp is central to the plot of the story.
Lupita Nyong’o is earning praise from Black social media users for a quote she made in a fashion magazine. The comment landed on the publication’s cover and caused many to see it as a welcome change in the industry.
The Vogue magazine quote cements Nyong’o’s representation of African-Americans and minorities.
“I want to create opportunities for people of color.”
...Forbes reported Nyong’o and the Soular Backpack team went to Katwe, Uganda with Disney after Queen of Katwe filming ended. There, they handed out the backpacks.
