==FUNDRAISING CLOSED! BUT YOU CAN STILL SNAG YOUR COLORING BOOK HERE
Hello! I'm Simone Grace, and I'm an illustrator and creator of Feminist Coloring Pages
. You can check out my work also on my Instagram
To celebrate Black History Month, I decided to illustrate one inspiring Black woman a day, for the entire month of February 2017. At the end of the month, I will create a digital, printable coloring book that combines all 28 of the drawings.
You can "purchase" the coloring book with a $15 donation and 100% of raised funds will be donated to NAACP and ACLU .
Hope you'll join me in working to reach this goal! The twenty-eight women I am illustrating are luminaries in politics, arts and sports, not to mention activism and philanthropy.
In addition to North Americans, I have also included women from the greater Black diaspora (e.g. Zadie Smith, Felicita "La Prieta" Méndez, Celia Cruz, Nancy Morejón) to celebrate their contribution to Pan-American history.
There are many more extraordinary women I left out, whom I hope to honor in future projects. Keep up with my progress on Instagram!
