Black Excellence for Kids in Foster Care

My goal is to create A Box of Black Excellence for black youth in foster care who are placed with white foster parents. The box will be full of black culture at its finest - black books, black movies, black art, etc. I want black youth to experience black boy joy and understand black girl magic; to love their blackness; to know their blackness and be empowered. Often times, white foster parents, though well-intentioned, don't know how or have the resources to engage or shape black youth in regards to black self-love and life. This project is one step to let black youth in care know that they are seen and to see themselves in the world. 

I would like to begin launching this project in February (Black History Month). Please support how you can, as soon as you can, so that I can begin to pull together materials and make this happen!

Thanks in advance.
