What Actions can u take to support?
1. Spread the word. Word of mouth is how we get it to folks, so please spread the good word.
2. Please follow miss Jill on Instagram now @thelovecurriculum
3. Get a book by requesting it from your local independent bookstore. If u know Jill and are in the Bay Area u can get a copy from her.
Stay tuned for the store link for Jill’s site but in the meantime you can see some of her work and other books here “The Love Curriculum”
Thx for your support as we slowly introduce this beauty to the babies, classrooms, libraries, Yoga studios, and offices round the world. It contains reflections, affirmations, and words about yoga poses and mindfulness in English and Spanish. It is for families, kids, teachers, and therapists!
Check out this podcast interview w/Jill for “Teacher’s Aligned”
And peep this artwork I made for Jill awhile back. Thats how long we’ve been working on this.
So, you’ve always wanted to get into kids books but you’re not sure where to start?
1. Read this free post I made about the start of my journey.
2. Purchase this downloadable pdf which details some of the key things I talk to newbies about when they ask me for advice.
If you’d like to get to know me a bit better you can check out some of the press and interviews I’ve done here. Peace!
Fam, just putting you on notice that this is coming. I’m about to be posting ALOT about this, just fyi. This is a new book project and I would love your support. Plz check back in a few days because it’s about to be ON.
This is such a great talk by John about the history of Afrofuturism and Black independent comics. I feel a sense of revitalization from this talk. Its a helpful reminder that our people have been doing this and continue to make stories with or without attention.

So I’ve been slowly getting the book into some other spots online and actual brick and mortar stores. For you folks who dont live in the Bay Area or NYC there are some other places where you can cop the book online such as Ashay by The Bay (Cali) and UGHH-Underground Hip Hop (Mass). So here are the new spots where you can purchase the book. If you’d like to purchase the book from me directly, either regular price or wholesale for libraries, stores, and organizations who promote literacy.
1. Strand Books in Manhattan, New York
2. Word Up Community Bookstore in Washington heights
3. UGHH Online-Underground Hip Hop Site based in Massachusetts
4. Rare Device in San Francisco
5. Pegasus Book on Solano ave in Berkeley
6. Underground Books in Sacramento, Ca (Black owned bookstore!)
And shout out to two organizations promoting literacy that purchased the book to give away to their constituencies. Egleston Square out there in Boston/Roxbury Massachusetts and Tandem Bay Area based in Oakland. Please support these independent book, online stores, and non profit organizations.
And if you still have not seen the book trailer, please watch it and share with potential libraries or bookstores who’d dig the story.
