a Charity Anthology For Jackson, Mississippi

Jackson, MS is a city full of history and culture. It's also a city suffering from local, state, and national neglect.

In August 2022 when newspapers announced that the city had issued a boil order for the city’s water, many were reminded of Flint, Michigan and other working class, primarily Black cities around the country who have been left without a vital service for days, weeks, months, and years.

Safe drinking water is a human right.

It’s a shame that so many poor and working-class people in the “richest” country in the world cannot turn on the taps in their homes to access it. It’s also telling how many of these residents are people of color, especially Black people. And, worst of all, its criminal how often we must rely on one another to survive rather than our elected officials.

The rising crises around water are worrying, and it is easy to be overwhelmed by so many concurrent crises. However, the desensitization of many to the pain and suffering of Black people spurred the creation of the CURRENT ANTHOLOGY.

All of the proceeds will raise money for two community-based Jackson charities:

CURRENT is a TWO VOLUME anthology featuring thirteen new romance and erotica stories from Black authors.
