Let's Build A Collection of Resources

Let's Build A Collection of Resources

Feb 02, 2022

Our next goal is to raise $1000 to sustain the costs of a monthly blog. Blogs offer additional accessibility and depth that Instagram limits. For example, The Colors of Us Instagram post garnered thousands of likes and opened the minds of educators who had been reading this book over the years.

Several asked for additional resources or books to read instead, so I shared the information in my Weekend Newsletter. Shortly after, I received an email from a professor who wanted to use my content in their education classes but needed an accessible file for their student-teachers to access. Then a few educators wanted a link they could easily forward to their co-teachers and school librarians. The requests kept coming in, and I kept responding, "it's only available on Instagram right now." I quickly realized I needed to start a blog to publish content that would allow me the space to smoothly share resources, provide text-speech access, the ability to own my content, and make it easier for people to share and cite my work.

I've spent the last two months working with a team of blogging experts to learn how to blog and to publish my very first blog post. It's been a steep learning curve... ya girl didn't even know how to login into the backend of my site, let alone how to structure a blog.

I wanted you to be the first to check out, The Colors of Us Children's Book and Racial Fetishization and our newest blog: 32 Children's Activities for Black History Month.

If you're already a supporting member, thank you so much. Your contribution directly supports the creation of antiracist content. Honestly, I can't do it without you.

If you're not a supporting member and benefit from the work, I invite you to become a supporting member at $5/month.

rooting for you,

Britt
