This is The Black Urbanist Weekly. I’m Kristen Jeffers and I’m making this weekly digital newsletter to share my Black Queer Feminist Urbanist Radical thoughts on how places and communities work. I've been at this work for ten years, working with Black American communities directly to shape their next steps, developing online and offline communication and thought-leadership platforms and sharing information so we all can be better people.
When I'm not writing this newsletter, I dabble in creating surface pattern designs and I teach folks how to leverage communication tools to promote themselves or their projects. Coming soon, a weekly talk and variety show.
When you subscribe, about once a week, generally on Fridays around 11 am Eastern. I share a thought-provoking article and reflection through my Black Queer Feminist Urbanist Radical lens and I also connect you to other dope folks and opportunities to help nurture that lens in yourself or assist others who are working through this lens, to make our world a better place.
It's that simple. Once you subscribe, I'll send you a direct link to my resource sheet, to get started reading up on the things that have helped me in building what I call my Black Queer Feminist Urbanist practice and ethic and which will help you do the same. I'll also ask you a few more questions to get to know you better, so the emails you get from me can be extra helpful and supportive.
