Released on May 9, Made from Scratch: Finding Success Without a Recipe is the story of a woman moving beyond her obstacles to find success with no presets, mapping a journey that led to the joy that has become synonymous with Mignon François.
When François decided it was time to tell her story, she thought R.H. Boyd was a natural fit. François saw the partnership with the 127-year-old company as an opportunity to help fulfill her personal mission of legacy building.
Since its founding in 1896, R.H. Boyd has taken seriously the charge to print, publish, and distribute resources with a targeted focus on African-American communities.
“Our company’s legacy is to serve as a voice for the unheard. These kinds of partnerships further empower our community to take control of their narrative and to tell their story,” says Dr. LaDonna Boyd, fifth-generation R.H. Boyd president/CEO. “We need storytellers now more than ever who won’t allow others to speak for them.”
