I’m here! Near the main entrance on 7th and Constitution. As soon as you walk in, I’m towards the left sitting on a red flannel blanket. See you soon!

On my way to DC! Come hang with me (@yolandaacree) tomorrow, Friday, 7/27 at Jazz in the Garden. It starts at 5pm, but I’m going to try and get there a little early to stake out a shaded, grassy spot. Bring your snacks and drinks of choice. Feel free to dm if you have questions. See you there!

The 4th of July has always been a paradoxical day for black folx in the U.S. knowing that our people did not gain legal independence until 89 years after the 1776 Declaration of Independence and that we still are fighting for our liberation 242 years later.
We leave you with the words of Audre Lorde and Frederick Douglass who sum up our feelings as well as some alternative celebrations on this day:
1. Practice rest and self-care.
2. Spread black joy unapologetically.
3. Honor the black and indigenous folx who made this country's existence possible.
4. Volunteer in your community.
5. Support BIPOC individuals and organizations dedicated to truth, justice, and liberation.
6. Work on your freedom plan.
7. Brush up on your survival skills.
8. Declutter, minimize, and simplify.
9. Use your magic in the service of justice.
10. Spend quality time with loved ones.

Freedom is one of our core values and this year we want to acknowledge an important day in the history of the United States. On this date in 1865, enslaved folx in Texas finally learned of the end of the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 became true. While we're still fighting for our liberation, we want to celebrate the end of this form of slavery for our people. Today is an opportunity to reflect on where we have come from and where we are headed. Feel free to share your thoughts on Juneteenth below. Happy Independence Day! #juneteenth#emancipationday#independenceday#freedomday#blackfreedom#blackliberation#blackhistory
Thanks to @freshfuturefarm for letting us stop by and do some weeding. We also got to taste some sweet blackberries straight from the vine and take some fresh mint and lemongrass home! If you’re in the area you can support by volunteering or shopping at the FFF store. #BlackMinimalists#BMCommunity

Looks like the meet up will be later this evening. We hope everyone can still come out. Please give us recommendations for a place that is chill where we can talk and grab something to eat and is centrally located. Thanks! If you can’t make it this evening, we’ll be at the Chattahoochee Nature Center tomorrow starting at 12:30 for the Butterfly Festival and meet up with Spiritual Homegirl. We don’t have any other plans Sunday so we may be able to do an impromptu meetup after the event. Let us know! Peace.
