New York-based Let’s Do Better has revealed a collaboration with design incubator Lichen New York titled Black History Education Reform. The capsule aims to raise awareness of inaccurate narratives in American History, particularly the way that Black history’s significance is diminished across curriculums.

The drop features “Truth Included” bookends and tote bags that have been produced in partnership with Lichen New York. All products in the capsule also release alongside books from the Let’s Do Better Book List, which features works from Frantz Fanon, Maya Angelou, W.E.B Du Bois and more that the group consider to be important and often overlooked sources of knowledge.

The bookends have been inspired by Donald Judd‘s Backward Slant Chair, while each end is available in five different colors meaning that the design can be customized by the owner. The tote bags come in a classic canvas construction, complete with an exterior book pocket and pont #5 of The Black Panthers’ 10-point program embroidered.

All profits from the capsule will be donated to The Carter Center, while every order will come with a Corey Presha artwork showing a step-by-step guide to demanding education reform at a local level. All of the items are available now from the Let’s Do Better web store, with prices covering three tiers from $150 USD for a tote bag, three books and a poster to $350 USD for a set of bookends, a poster and 10 books from the reading list.
