Crowdfunding Favorites

There are thousands of live crowdfunding projects to discover every week, so we’re here to show you the best ones. In this bimonthly newsletter, we are highlighting Black creators and their projects. We, as BackerKit, stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We stand against racism and anti-blackness, police brutality, and the systemic racial injustices that the Black community faces. You can read our statement here.

The Black Experience in Design: Identity, Reflection & Expression presents the work of six editors and over 70 designers, artists, curators, educators, students, and researchers who represent a wide cross-section of Black diasporic identities and multi-disciplinary practices. Forewords by Emory Douglas and Ruha Benjamin frame the book in an historical and socio-political context, and an Afterword by Eddie Opara offers an intimate, spiritual coda.
