“Guerrilla gardening is urban gardening and food justice.” This is what Emmy Gran, a teacher of seed bomb making, stated in the article ‘Guerrilla Gardeners’ Spread Seeds of Social Change’ in the Washington Post six years ago. This type of gardening is the act of cultivating on land that this is not legally owned by those who cultivate on it. It is not just done in the name of urban gardening and food justice.

❤ So I just met the author of an Ancestrally relevant #BlackChildrensBook y'all! Available at www.Egyptrepco.com

❤ "Makeda: Queen of Sheba" by Abrafi Sanyika is a story about a young girl whose natty locks act as an antennae to the ancestors! She's visited by ancient figures from history who come tell her about their lives (From Hatshepsut to Toussaint)!

❤ This book has been circulating all the best spots in LA, and I was happy to buck up on the writer that's inspiring a new genre of black storybook!
