I thought you'd never ask.
Not being satisfied with the lack of representation and access to Black authors and entrepreneurs, we decided to BE THE CHANGE we wanted to see.
Founded by DFW educator & diversity/inclusion advocate, Nia-Tayler Clark, BLACKLIT’s mission is to help close the literacy gap, to increase representation, and to cultivate conversations that bring unity across racial divides.
Now to help further our efforts to close the literacy gap and increase representation in literature, the BLACKLIT Bookstore is here! This community-driven book store is committed to bringing diverse authors from around the world to Dallas. In addition to a plethora of books by Black authors, inside our walls, you can find poetry readings, book clubs, local musicians, and filmmakers showcasing their work through open mic nights and various other community events. Don't just get lit, get BLACKLIT!
Inside every BLACKLIT BOX, subscribers receive a book a Black author, a shirt, and 3-5 products from Black-owned businesses.
Inside the BLACKLIT MINI, subscribers receive a book a Black author, a shirt, and 1 product from a Black-owned business.
Great question - we actually think it's a steal! Here's why:
1) It saves you money. Each box contains over $50 in savings!
2) It's customizable. We are not here to force you to read books that you don't like. In fact, we want to help you discover books that you do like! You get to pick your genre, vote for books of the month, select what size shirt fits you best, and you can choose just how many products from Black-owned businesses to discover each month.
3) It saves you time. We go and do the time consuming task of finding and filtering products from Black-owned businesses and delivering them to your doorstep.
4) It helps circulate the Black dollar. Circulating the Black-dollar in the black community for longer periods of time, results in more successful businesses, more employment opportunities, lower unemployment figures, greater homeownership, and higher academic achievements.
For the past three years, BLACKLIT has been home to the first monthly subscription box to exclusively highlight Black authors and entrepreneurs, helping to support, promote, and bring visibility to Black authors and Black-owned businesses.
We help place them in front of their target audience which has tons of benefits!
Absolutely NOT! 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 empathy, understanding, and awareness. We welcome you with open arms!
