The day to honor the award-winning media personality and co-host of “The Breakfast Club” was officially designated in 2018. The New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio assigned Angela Yee Day as a platform that celebrates Yee’s Caribbean and Brooklyn roots and supports local businesses. The media maven’s philanthropy centers around providing the community with information and access to culture, nutrition, financial literacy, and education.
Angela Yee recently launched her socially conscious Coffee Uplifts People (CUP) brand. The brand aims to address discrimination that marginalized people of color often face in countries where coffee beans are harvested and manufactured.
