SHE CONTAINS MULTITUDES
Her incisive essays reference familiar touchstones of the mainstream minimalist movement: mental health, mindfulness, authenticity, and so forth. But from her very first post, it’s clear that her focus is broader when she mentions “keeping my resources within the Black community and supporting women-owned businesses.” On her blog, all her interviewees are fellow Black minimalists and Black women entrepreneurs/creatives. The “Afro” in AfroMinimalist isn’t merely a self-description. It’s a critique of the prevailing whiteness of minimalist culture.
