This issue celebrates the things about Black culture that are enduring, and that can’t be altered by one bad year – our resilience, our creativity and our radical joy. In the pages of this issue we’ll be sharing with you the visionary work that is taking place every day in our Diaspora. We’ll introduce you to a growing community of Black home brewers who are creating their own space in craft brewing. Then we’re off for a photo tour of beautiful Tanzania. We’ll look at the modern work of South African artists Faatimah Mohamed-Luke and Al Luke, and for the holidays, we’ll share with you our modern take on the Pan-Africanist celebration of Kwanzaa.

In issue 5 we are thrilled to take you to the hottest decor boutique in Germany, created and designed by our cover star Chris Glass. Then we’ll give you a sneak peek into our latest project – AphroFarmhouse. And our hot topic is an important discussion on the recession and how we can craft an economic plan that puts Black people first.

While we are excited to show you all that’s beautiful around the Diaspora, we also want to share with you the reason why we do this work – to educate, uplift and give back. This holiday season we’re excited to let you know about our partnership with (RED) on an exclusive collection of pillows and tabletop to raise awareness and critical funds for the world’s most vulnerable communities impacted by HIV/AIDS and now COVID-19. And you’ll find more amazing products that support Black businesses in our expansive Mood gift guide.
