Dream. Create. Publish.

Your ancestors were denied

the right to be heard.

“As an African-American, we stand on the shoulders of people who fought despite not seeing victories in their lifetime or even in their children’s lifetime or even in their grandchildren’s lifetime. So fatalism isn’t really an option.”

- Ta-Nehisi Coates
