Follow black artists and activists:

Twitter thread by Kalila Stormfire’s Economical Magick Services about podcasts to support: “Here are some shows that are headed by Black creativity, magic, rage, horror, and joy.

Louisville Community Bail Fund is an organized effort by Black Lives Matter Louisville to collect funds for cash bails for people competing with the criminal justice system in financial hardship. Beyond bailing out community members, they also provide care and support after their release.

Campaign Zero strives to bring an end to police brutality and violence through holding agencies accountable for improving their relationship with local communities. Their efforts include pushing forward fair police union contracts, limiting use of force, and demilitarizing our police.

For those wanting some hopeful art to listen to during self-care time, I recommend Flyest Fables. For those who want to experience art that digs deeply into different aspects of oppression, I recommend the audio dramas Black Friday and Null and Void. (All three of these have transcripts on their websites.)

Flyest Fables: “Flyest Fables is an interconnected fiction anthology.” These hopepunk fables by Morgan Givens are a new hopeful mythology with deep roots African American histories and culture centered on the empowerment of people with intersecting identities.

Black Friday: “Every Friday a strange phenomenon turns white people into black people. America freaks out.” “Black Friday is an eight-part series written, produced, and directed by Tycho Newman.”

Null/Void: “Null/Void is a science fiction audio drama about a young woman, Piper Lee, whose life is saved by a mysterious voice named Adelaide. After uncovering a malicious plot, Piper and her friends must defend their small town from a family of ruthless billionaires who wish to exploit and destroy it. Piper must fight to save her home and discover the true identity of Adelaide.” Null/Void is created and directed by Cole Burkhardt.

 

Please take care of yourselves and each other! <3
