In honor of Black History Month, we will be doing a monthly (year round) feature of the many integral black educators, writers, politicians, artists, activists, & organizers who have & continue to magnify & embody the importance of protecting & celebrating black culture, their many sacrifices, & history.
This history would not exist without these contributors, and our goal is to consistently elevate & honor the truth of these sacrifices, PROTECT their rights, advocate for correcting the injustices committed against them, & acknowledge the immense beauty & knowledge they have blessed our nation with.
Each month, profits from these items will be donated to organizations that specifically support the prosperity, progression, & protection of black culture & history.
In February 2022, we are featuring Gloria Jean Watkins (1952-2021), known by her pen name Bell Hooks, a magical author, intersectional feminist, scholar, & social activist who examined the connections between race, gender, & class. Hooks taught us "All About Love" that "Feminism is for Everybody", & the importance of "Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black". (Links to each of these books go directly to black owned, online bookstores).
