In honor of Black History Month, Off The Beaten Path Coffee and Beverage Cafe, downtown’s newest minority-owned business, will be hosting several events throughout the month designed to empower and inspire the African-American community.

Owner Jemi Moore kicked off the monthlong celebration last weekend when she invited author Joyful Soul for a book signing event for her latest novel “Giving Birth to HIV.”  The bestseller, which is available on Amazon and Goodreads, tells the story of an African-American couple and their struggle with HIV.

During an interview with The Chronicle, Moore said she decided to host events throughout the month to show people of color they can achieve anything they put their minds to. The events Moore has planned will address a number of issues that plague communities across the country.

Moore said, “This is not just about a business. Doing things that connect us to the community is what we’re really about. I’m a God-fearing woman, so everything I do I do it with passion and with my love for Christ.”

This Saturday, Feb. 10, financial guru Cordi Powell will host a free workshop to help attendees manage their finances. Powell, who is the founder of Favored Financial Planning, works to help individuals understand how to integrate the pieces that comprise their financial life and know they can achieve their goals and ultimately fulfill their purpose in life.

The workshop is scheduled to begin at noon. Off The Beaten Path Coffee and Beverage Café is located at 102 West 3rd St. For more information or to register for the workshop, call (336) 869-3481.
