Kimberly Drew and Jenna Wortham, the co-editors of the visual anthology “Black Futures,” are taking over Facebook’s Lift Black Voices as the first ever guest curators, for three weeks beginning today January 11. They are personally selecting collections of dialogues, essays and more on the themes of Systems of Care, Justice, Memory and Legacy, Ownership, and Joy.
Lift Black Voices is a space in the Facebook App that highlights stories from Black people, shares educational resources, and inspires people to take action through fundraising for racial justice causes.
In “Black Futures,” Kimberly and Jenna invite us to read the book alongside a device so we can search out names and terms that intrigue us. Lift Black Voices can facilitate this approach. We hope that by elevating underrepresented voices we are helping people connect to impactful Black voices on Facebook and facilitating the start to connecting people to more inclusive and dynamic communities beyond this destination on our platform.
Some of the features of this takeover include:
- A custom header of the collaboration between Lift Black Voices and “Black Futures”
- An introduction to the hub by Kimberly and Jenna (included below)
- A commissioned breathwork video for self care by Siedeh Foxie
- A hashtag prompt that allows users to delve deeper
Please let me know of any questions and please visit Lift Black Voices to see Jenna and Kimberly’s selections.
