Learn how to respond to racism, along with fun activities that build cultural awareness including food preparation, Black holiday celebrations, arts, games, movies and podcasts. The COLORSBIND box answers your curiosities about racial difference and helps you in the constructions of parental self-image, holistic child rearing, and aspirations to seek Black cultural knowledge.
The COLORSBIND box is here to answer the hard questions, have the tough conversations, partner with you in raising healthy, racially aware, dynamic and confident Black children...

We specialize in providing the BEST Black cultural and transracial adoption resources available. Each box includes an educational parental guide called "COLORSBIND US" which includes: a) researched-based perspectives about the holistic development of Black children; b) a range of age appropriate, racial-esteem focused family exercises and confidence-building "factivities"; c) listings of relevant identity-based books, podcast, art, games and movies about Black culture/history; and d) details about our exclusive COLORSBIND Q&A conference call groups facilitated by the Community V(i)llage founders Dr. Bryan K. Hotchkins and Nedra K. Hotchkins, M.Ed, who specialize in the identity development of Black youth. The "COLORSBIND US" guide offers varied levels of exercises and factivities that are geared to Beginner, Intermediate and Experienced levels of knowledge about Black culture/history.
