2021 Creative Action Fund | Black Body Survival Guide
We are just a few months away from completing and publishing the Black Body Survival Guide, a compilation of satirical tips, tricks, and tools for navigating post-racial America with a Black Body. We’ve been writing the book for the past few years and currently creating illustrations, collages and layout work in preparation for publishing and releasing in August 2021. The audience for the book are intergenerational Black audiences and those who are interested in the role of humor and satire in combating racism.
