How to Build a Summer Routine Rooted In Black Brilliance

Did you know that 75% of the time we spend with our kids in our lifetime will be spent by age 12?

It’s a reminder that we need to slow down, simplify, and prioritize the precious time we have with our children

Summer Matters Because:

  • It’s a perfect time for caregivers and families to connect, bond, and cultivate their special relationship with their child.
  • It’s a great opportunity to integrate culture and pro-Black identity rooted in self-confidence, self-love, and Black brilliance.
  • It provides the expansive time to build leadership, critical thinking, literacy, and creativity skills.

All of our materials are created by Black people as a movement ensuring that Black brilliance is acknowledged, amplified, and celebrated today and always. We hope this movement awakens a more profound knowledge of Black creators and ultimately propels us to the center of conversations about who to trust with knowledge as leaders, innovators, and curators for generations to come.

Our values stem from ancestral wisdom and our childrens’ power, creating the foundation for our work, life, and legacy.
