Years from now, when someone mentions March 2020, most people will be reminiscent of COVID-19, but for Khalilah Womack, March 2020 will be remembered as the month that her dream project, I Scream Ice Scream Rolls, came to life. Womack opened up shop in Underground Atlanta on March 13, days before the mandatory quarantine, an experience not many small business owners have gone through, but she has persevered through these unprecedented challenges.
