Black Lives Matter Product Roundup

Howdy! I had a bunch of brilliant ideas for this week’s roundup, but while I was trying to decide what to do, I thought of the movement that’s been on everyone’s mind lately, the Black Lives Matter movement.

Without going in to too much detail, the recent protests have made me do a lot of thinking. I’m white, and while this has not been my first consideration of my own privilege, local action has made me rethink a lot about the world I live in. I support the BLM movement, and I hope to continue to learn about what can be done to fix the fundamental issues in American society.

For the moment, what I can do is share the works of Black artists, and ask you to support these artists! All the works I’ve selected come from Black-owned businesses on Etsy, which means the max amount of money goes to those artists or the charities they support. 

With all that said, here’s the Black Lives Matter Product Roundup!

1) Scotch and Tea, Black Lives Matter Postcards

These postcards were what inspired this roundup. My mom asked me to look for BLM postcards on Etsy, and while these are more art than mass-mail, I absolutely love these designs. In other timely design, the artist also has handmade face masks and stay-at-home Pride gear.

2) Mosaic Pop Art, Black Lives Matter T-Shirt

This design is beautiful. Simple and to the point, but elegant. You can also find it on Mosaic Pop Art’s shop as a sticker, as well as many other cool pieces. Net proceeds from this art go to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.

3) Black Girl Magic Gifts, Black Lives Matter Sticker

Gold glitter background. Fantastic Afro-sporting woman. What more can I say? I love it!

4) XO, Nicole Designs, Juneteenth Button Pins

If you’re looking for a small way to show your support and/or Black Pride, these pins are beautiful and to the point. There’s two other designs, and you can pick three or get all six.

5) 38ktgold Artistry, Power to the People Art

Art or protest sign? Guess that’s up to you to choose. I love the bold basic design of this painting. The artist also has a bunch of other colorful artworks available, but during June 100% of proceeds from this work goes to organization Assata’s Daughters.

6) Breathe Live Explore, Black Lives Matter Art Print

Gorgeous. The colors bring me so much joy. Again, the artist has multiple other lovely Black-centric designs to check out, so make sure you do!

If you’re looking for other ways to financially support the Black community, Autostraddle and TIME have great resources. Most online marketplaces like Etsy have made lists to promote Black sellers, and if you can, buy locally as well! And remember, even if you can’t do much financially, listening to the needs of Black folks and POC (especially if you’re white), learning, and educating are free and vital.
