Edition #29 Notes
The Leaders edition is a special collaboration with educator and writer Marcie Alvis-Walker. Marcie runs the Black Coffee with White Friends blog and Instagram, alongside Mockingbird History Lessons for Adults, and the Cream & Sugar book club.
This edition contains a timely reminder by author Octavia Butler, who in Parable of the Talents wrote about what it means to be a true leader and the active part we all must play in making sure we choose leadership that is kind, just, and for all.
We are donating $5 from every notebook to Color of Change, an organization that empowers us to do something real about injustice through legislative action.

Dapper Notes are the best quality pocket sized notebooks you can get. The textile cover and thread binding means the books will hold up through time. I love the thick paper as well; good for fountain pens.Cindy
