The Vault is Black Yield’s political education platform including tools and information related to Black Liberation struggle and Black life, publicly available for learning and organizing. Engaging all senses, the content includes an open-access library, a multi-media archive, and an interactive food creation portal.
The Vault project is made up of three key components; The Black Life Archive, The Little Timbuktu Lending Library, and Food Sovereignty and Me.
The Black Life Archive is made up of digital stories depicting various facets of Black life in the United States and abroad. Currently, the Black Life Archive is home to autobiographical reflections from members of the Cherry Hill as well as Food Stories, a series a digital stories centered around various experiences with food.
The Little Timbuktu Lending Library is actually the name of two major pieces within The Vault.
The Library exist as both a digital resource for patrons to access as well as a wonderfully curated physical space with our office space at 844 Roundview Road.
Through this approach, it is our hope that we can meet folks wherever they are and introduce them to the world of literature.
Food Sovereignty and Me is our community-based cooking show spotlighting recipes across the diaspora.
The Food Sovereignty and Me series spotlights the magic of cooking and breaking bread together by showing the full process immediately followed by reflections from the participants.
