Action 02: 

Dismantling Injustice

BBE has elevated and proclaimed the greatness of 250 diverse designers through our 15 SAY IT LOUD Exhibitions to date. The goal initially was to reach 500 in 5 years. The urgency for this content is NOW and as we discuss the books that must be removed from the curriculum, we are looking to make a meaningful addition. We will publish a Great Diverse Designers textbook and create a directory for business opportunities for the featured designers. 

 

This call for action is setting a goal of increasing the content of the library to both serve as a directory for business opportunities for the featured designers and material for the publication of our textbook. 

  • Our goal is to double the profiles to reach the goal of 500. 

  • When we began we had 34% of the US is represented in the library, today we have 68%, we want to reach a full 100%. In addition to representing the United States, we are aiming to represent a global community of designers. Currently we have 411 featured diverse designers of the 500 we are targeting.  

  • Therefore we are seeking submissions from Caribbean islands and from each inhabitable continent.
