Q: Is it okay if I’m a white ally who buys this box? Is that okay?Asked by Adelaide S., September 2020

BLACKLIT answered...October 2020

Hey Adelaide,
Absolutely! One of the reasons why started I BlackLIT was to highlight Black authors and entrepreneurs. These individuals are incredibly talented and would appreciate the opportunity to reach audiences beyond their own race. In addition, my prayer is that BlackLIT helps close the racial divide by increasing representation and awareness. We welcome you with open arms!

Q: I am wondering if you have considered making an option to alternate between fiction and nonfiction. Also- if you had considered making a family box for both adults and kids? I want all the options! :)Asked by Sierra A., July 2020

BLACKLIT answered...October 2020

Hey Sierra!
You can alternate between genres at any time by logging into your Cratejoy account.
Also, that family box that you mentioned is on the way!! =) Great minds think alike!

Someone gifted me a Black Lit box and I LOVED it! It was well packaged and everything included was great quality. I’m so looking forward to using everything in my box! Also, the box was identity affirming, and served as a gentle reminder to celebrate myself and other women of color in my village. I would highly recommend this box as a gift to yourself or a special person in your life!

Not only do you get a great book but you get a box full of amazing products from Black-owned businesses. My daughter and I both get this box, one of us fiction and the other non-fiction. Love it!

I understand with covid and postal issues, shipping has been and will continue to be an issue, however waiting to receive subscription boxes until almost time for next month’s billing is making me want to cancel my subscription. I’m also thinking with covid box items are starting to repeat. I have only been a subscriber for less than a year and already have received repeated items.
