BLACK IS MAGIC
Black History Month celebrates Black history and honors the stories, culture, and achievements of Black people. The Black Is Magic drop celebrates and supports different expressions of Black identity.
Each card was illustrated by a Black artist who brought their unique art style to the drop. Ernanda Souza interprets Shalai, Voice of Plenty as a guardian angel who protects and shields the people. Ejiwa ‘Edge’ Ebenebe gives us a Ponder that honors elders and African spiritual tradition. Hillary Wilson, Dani Pendergast, KNIIO, Thomas Zenteno, and Julio Reyna celebrate more aspects of the Black experience in additional cards that will be revealed soon.
Black Girls CODE aims to increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color between ages seven and seventeen to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.
