MMXX: The Black Artivism Capsule is a curated collection of art made by Black creatives worldwide during the 2020 pandemic.<br><br>Exploring art by photographers, painters, illustrators, and other creatives, this debut coffee table art book freezes a moment in time when Black people were globally shook to their cores. This project allows Black people to define themselves in order to paint a full spectrum of the Black experience during civil unrest, health crises, and beacons of hope for the future.<br><br>Curated by Nakia A. Booker, MMXX: The Black Artivism Capsule includes powerful pieces from artists such as Raphael Adjetey Adjei Mayne, Ashley Nesmith, Khalid Thompson, and the late Crystal Kirk.<br><br>Not only does the publication feature art, but it, in itself, is a thing of beauty as well. Dr. Monique Wells says that "the layout is simply magnificent." Sovereign Noir Publications calls it a "necessary part of cultural identity that allows Black people to speak for themselves as artists, creatives, and human beings who, unfortunately, have a history of being silenced and murdered when speaking their truths."
