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

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!
We were so happy to get our package. It was filled with beautiful, life enriching surprises. I honestly cannot say enough about how grateful we are to have this. We went with a one time delivery but will be signing up for more. If you are considering this, go for it.
I just got my first box and I love everything in it! I thought the food items were an unusual but nice touch. I love the shirt <3! I can't wait to read this new book.
I received my first box from Black Lit. I was just super excited to receive a book I’ve been wanting. However I got the book and soo much more. A great T-shirt supporting Black excellence, a face masks that reads “read books by Black Women”, stickers, a coffee mug with prominent Black Females (this was special for March Women’s Month), a cool laminated bookmark that features Solange, So freakin CUTE! And a few wellness products (body wipes, lavender wipes and this cool tea bag bath salts). If you’re a bookworm and looking for a fun subscription box that highlights Black authors, Black excellence with fun tees and other cute items that you will definitely use in your everyday life. Get Black Lit, you won’t be disappointed! Also follow them on social media sometimes they give sneak peeks of the monthly Tshirt or book you will receive.
This box is just awesome. It features good quality, amazing books by incredibly intelligent and talented black authors. It highlights black talent and black authors and helps them to get more recognition, more readers, more attention, more appreciation, and more praise. I absolutely love what this subscription service stands for--literature, learning, and representation. I love seeing a black owned business that is so wonderful. I really admire its creator for what she's done. It is so well done in every area from the products included, like the shirts, to the books to the prompt and quick shipping and customer service, I genuinely believe that it adds something to and enriches people's lives. It's something that helps make us better and the world a better place. They just include so much stuff to enjoy. So fun. High quality, and would recommend.
I absolutely love this box! I am pleasantly surprised each month with the curation of items and new companies I can spend with that look like me and have my interest. I wish there was a mom/son box. Budgeting now to get the fiction and kids book!
This is my first box with Black Lit and I’m totally pleased so much so that I shared my newfound love with my friends.
The presentation of this box is nice and the items included are useful and the items are from black owned businesses which is grade A!
The products were high quality, the two books were thematically connected but very different and I appreciated having options, and it was all packaged carefully and beautifully. I also found the discussion questions thought provoking and was grateful for the additional information about the products.
I love my box and I’ve told all my friends! It’s such a treat and above expectations. This is one of those subscriptions that feels like Christmas ever time it comes. I absolutely love the variety of items and shipping was quick. I look forward to seeing what’s next.
