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!
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 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.
Purchased the Blacklit - men box for my partner and he loved it!! 😊 great selection of products and great book pick! Thank you
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.
LOVE LOVE LOVE my first box 🥰🥰 The book looks interesting and the extras were perfect. Will be keeping this subscription ❤️
absolutely loved everything about this box!
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 love this box! Plain and simple...it made me smile, feel proud, and get reading again. Thank you!!
This is a great box with an eclectic mix of products to go with quality literature.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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 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.
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 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.
My mom lives this so much! Each week she is so excited to show me what was in her box. Could not be happier with this purchase for her!
Shipping leaves something to be desired says will be delivered on Thursday then Thursday they say Tuesday
I liked the variety of items in this box and the opportunity to purchase moe
This is excellent. This was a gift for my daughter and she thought it was great.
I just received my first BlackLit box and I love it. It came one day before it was supposed to. I can definitely use all the additional items that came with it as well. I will continue to order monthly.
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.
I enjoyed my first bix. Looking forward to my next one.
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.
