The Open Mind Project

We are delighted to be partnering with The Open Minds Project and giving you the opportunity to join with us ensuring that they can continue the amazing work that they do. Since 2020 we have supported the charity through offering them discounted books that they then give for free to schools in Sussex. Now you can get involved to by adding a little extra when you get to checkout. All the money you add with the donation button will go to the charity.

This volunteer-run charity is committed to resourcing literature for schools and other public spaces that depicts black people in a normal, positive way. The charity is fighting to normalise accurate cultural representations in all genres of literature and thereby challenge stereotypical views. We are working to better represent black and brown children through life-affirming literature featuring inspiring black characters. 

The aim is that it will become normal for these children to see their skin colour and culture positively represented in the books they read while enlightening children on other cultures about the world around them. The Open Minds Project believes that education is the key to racial understanding and acceptance and that this will translate positively into all spheres of a person’s life.
