Jeannette Makes Masks tells the story of a black female entrepreneur who during the beginning of the Covid pandemic, was faced with hunger as her shop was unable to make an income. She decided to make masks and took a social initiative to educate and provide people less fortunate than her with protective gear. The story further captures the community’s opinion on the Covid pandemic and highlights how for some people, putting food on the table is more important than a virus they can not see.
