For January, the Floret Coalition is supporting @thefreeblackwomenslibrary.
The Free Black Women’s Library is a social art project and traveling book collection that celebrates the brilliance, diversity, and imagination of Black women writers. Founded by OlaRonke Akinmowo, the library provides an inclusive and accessible space for reading, writing, learning, resting, creating, and connecting. The library features a collection of over 3000 books by Black women as well as free monthly programming that includes workshops, performances, film screenings, book talks, and radical conversations on race, gender, art and culture. Currently, donations go towards acquiring a Reading Room, Bookmobile and Staffperson for the library.
