"The act of participating in cooperative and solidarity economics helps to chisel away the power of capitalism. "

~Jessica Gordon Nembhard

For us here at Bright Black, community is a verb. We put our values of cooperative economics and inter-being into practice through our collaborations, Limited Edition candles, and charitable donations. We've been blessed on this scent storytelling journey of ours, and we're committed to sharing those blessings far and wide. 

NO CHILD SHOULD BE THROWN IN JAIL FOR LIFE

Over 70% of children given life sentences without parole in the United States are Black. The Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth (CFSY) fights this inhumane practice through direct advocacy, awareness raising, and legislative strategies. In 2021, we were proud to support their work by donating 60% of net online sales from our Limited Edition CFSY candle to their organization. 

You can read more about this issue, and donate directly to CFSY below.
