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!

I love the message and the mission of this box: black lives matter, literacy empowers communities, and your spending power can reflect that. The box came with excellent products that were great quality and unisex. The book was a collector's edition which was AMAZING! I wish there were more size options since I am petite or if you were getting it for a young adult/kid, but what a great box anyway!

I was gifted a few months of BlackLit by my employer, and getting my box in the mail has been the highlight of my quarantine! I chose the fiction box, and have loved getting a novel that I didn't choose myself. All the other fun things in the boxes have been beautiful, affirming, and good quality: pens, journals, shirts, stickers, and other decorative fun things:) I recommend BlackLit to all.
