The Black Literacy & Arts Collaborative (BLAC) Project is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that was created as a means to educate, empower and uplift BIPOC youth and creatives at the intersection of art, culture, and activism. By invoking radical imagination, they encourage BIPOC communities to change landscapes all while inspiring new realities.
This Saturday is Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day and Liberation Day, and commemorates the official end of slavery in the United States. It became a state holiday in Rhode Island in 2012, in Massachusetts in 2020, and a federal holiday in 2021.
In observance of this important day and as part of our continued efforts to invest back into our community, we'll be donating 5% of all sales on Saturday to The Black Literacy & Arts Collaborative (BLAC) Project!
