It’s a future piece of history itself, showcasing the enduring mystique and creativity embedded in the artifacts of Black culture and the people who shape it. It’s a must-have.”

“Kiyanna and Jannah’s generous offering celebrates the collectors, the archivists, the preservers, and the memory workers . . . This book not only celebrates items from our past but reminds us to hold tight to the items we cherish now—because one day, they, too, will become collector’s items for a future generation.”

"This book is a celebration of African American culture, showcasing the strength that emanates from our connection throughout the diaspora…To safeguard this legacy is to empower future generations with the knowledge of this rich heritage, fostering a profound sense of identity and pride."
