Whenever you see a book or popular documentary on minimalism, there is usually a white face behind it. Minimalism has almost become synonymous with whiteness (literally and figuratively) in our culture. Today we talk with Christine Platt the @afrominimalist about how to reclaim minimalism in the Black community and ultimately live more with less. Christine’s most recent book, The Afrominimalist’s Guide To Living With Less, is a radical re-envisioning of minimalism that focuses on authenticity over aesthetics.
