In May 2020, you told Jane, via Instagram, non-fiction books to read to be anti-racist and to make us all better people, and she made it into an Ideal Bookshelf.
AND, click here to download a checklist of those books, so you can read them all.
We're donating profits on this mug to the Equal Justice Initiative. Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson (author of Just Mercy), the EJI "is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society." Please visit their website to learn more about them.
This sturdy 11 ounce (i.e., normal size) or 15 ounce (fits more coffee!) white ceramic mug is both microwave and dishwasher safe. There are books all the way around it, so it works beautifully for both coffee and tea drinkers, and for both righties and lefties.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a special edition mug and is printed on demand, and due to COVID-19 delays is currently taking well over a week to ship (instead of the normal 1-2 days), and comes in a plain cardboard box, not our normal red and white branded box.
