WHO WE ARE

The Brownies’ Book is apart of the making of a historic canon: the African American children’s literary canon founded in 1919. The magazine’s revival is apart of a mission to generate kid power and create a more inclusive world during the 21st century. The Brownie Collective, our non-profit,  will complete its mission through a combination of thought-provoking stories, creative expression, and business innovation. We aim to eradicate ‘the standard’ and shift narratives around ‘the other’ from intolerance and even tolerance to celebration and to generally be a thing of joy, unity, happiness, beauty, strength and expansion.
