Questions

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.

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!

Great box

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 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 β€œread 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.

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.
