On this episode, we hear my interview with Black micro-business owner Rise Jones. After a two-year life-threatening battle with a rare form of leukemia blood cancer (CMML) which required chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, and two years for recovery, there is a story to be told. Leukemia is a big part Rise Jones story, but not the whole story. At the end of her recovery period, her husband asked the question: “What do you really want to do with your life?” Indirectly, Rise answered, “I want a teahouse.” TeaLee’s TeaHouse and Bookstore is located at the gateway of Denver’s Historic Five Points. In an afro-centric atmosphere, they provide high-quality loose-leaf teas, food, and specialty drinks, including beer and wine. We hear Rise’s story in the time of Covid 19.
