AishaCousins.com is an art studio that makes fun, do-it-yourself art projects for black Americans who want to contribute to the evolution of their own cultures. Our projects help you explore the connection between your beliefs, your family history, and current changes in society. We create tools to help you start inter-generational conversations about important, but often overlooked aspects of black life in America so you, your family, and your neighbors, can build habits that shape a future you want to live in.
While these projects are written first and foremost for black audiences, they are useful for anyone looking to learn more about black history and popular culture. By engaging black folks from different backgrounds in conversations about their definitions of beauty and the changes taking place in our worlds, we help people of all backgrounds see just how diverse and beautiful our stories are.
