Lately, I've been thinking about one of our partnering farms, Tat Tvam Asi. “You are that,” is the loose translation, but I’d like to think it means WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. Our hopes, our dreams, our struggles, our progress. We are EVERYTHING. All of it. And while this really isn’t the time or space to wax poetic on philosophy and spirituality, suffice it to say that we stand in unwavering solidarity with our greater BIPOC community, friends, and family.

So, in the spirit of solidarity and in honoring Juneteenth, I wanted to share a really cool initiative that’s happening right now, See In Black, a project supporting Black photographers in telling their stories through their lens. "We are artists and archivists. We do not merely make images of Black figures, we document a history that is often unrecorded with intentionality, respect, nuance, and care. We serve as a platform for Black people to stand proudly in their permanence," See In Black Founders Joshua Kissi and Micaiah Carter.

For a limited, two-week run, 70+ images will be available for purchase for a charity print sale. Artifact Uprising will be producing Large Format Prints (11x14 size) to benefit the initiative and will be donating the first 1,500 that are ordered. All profits will support five key pillars of Black advancement: civil rights, education/arts, intersectionality, community building, and criminal justice reform, and will be distributed among the following:

Know Your Rights Camp
Youth Empowerment Project
National Black Justice Coalition
Black Futures Lab
The Bail Project

Prints for sale will be available starting 6/19 and will end on 7/3, the day before Independence Day.
