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!

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!
The concept is AMAZING! I’m an off and on avid reader and I’m always looking for ways to change up routine. This company advocates for literacy and most importantly it promotes black authors. It’s extremely critical to show the younger generation the importance in reading and supporting our own, hence why I subscribed. Either I’m missing the emails or the concept of this particular subscription. I assumed if I renewed towards the beginning of the month by mid to late in that same month I would receive my box. In August, after a few emails the owner advised there wasn’t a box for that month, yet my account was charged and apparently that was for the September’s box. Evidently I was supposed to be notified via email and I never was. This made me skip October all together (which I regret because a crew sweatshirt was in that box 😑). Here we are in November, my subscription renewed on the 11th and today is the 30th. I guess I’m confused on how this really works. I’m use to paying for a subscription and receiving the item the same month. I can’t afford to pay in advance for items I may or may not get depending on the month. Great box, great concept but the consistency is lacking. However the skip option is easily available so I’ll stick with it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I love this box! Plain and simple...it made me smile, feel proud, and get reading again. Thank you!!
