Hi everyone I’m a 23 year old self published author and I’m currently needing help with funding my third children’s book and animated
Campaign ClosedYou no longer can pledge on the project
The mission of Finesse LLC is to provide much needed representation for our black youth by promoting black excellence and teaching black history through literature and media
With certain states removing CRT (Critical Race Theory) in schools, I feel as though it’s extremely crucial that we make sure ALL children are learning and appreciating the amazing things that come from each culture
My children’s book series ‘We Were Also Kings And Queens’ provides a family adventure where we all learn about outstanding historical figures throughout black history. These figures are individuals that we don’t typically learn about in school. On top of the book series, I also plan on implementing a cartoon for kids and all over to enjoy.
I’m seeking funding because I’m a team of 1 (which I hope to change soon). Everything from hiring a illustrator to publishing the book itself, I pay for out of pocket while still working a 9-5. This book series (and potential cartoon show) is truly bigger than me. I’ve had parents reach out thanking me for being the voice for our black youth and providing the representation that large authors and media outlets aren’t providing. I want to be able to continue doing this but I honestly need support.
Thank you to everyone who is investing there time resources into helping me push this project ! It’s truly appreciated.
