“… There is simply no possibility of a real change in the Negro’s situation without the most radical and far-reaching changes in the American political and social structure,” wrote James Baldwin in The Fire Next Time. The more things change, the more they stay the same. His words, written in 1962, are just as valid now as they were then.
Materials: 12mm or 14mm fire agate gems. Size depends on supplies.
Band: Heirloom-quality, reinforced steel cable is double-stranded throughout the whole bracelet, which makes it virtually unbreakable.
Clasp: Finished with an over-sized, stainless steel shackle clasp, which can be engraved with your initials. The clasp has three size settings so that you can adjust it to just the right drape for your wrist. As symbolic as it is striking, the shackle clasp is representative of overcoming the things that bind us– both personal and systemic.
Properties: Fire agate is said to give its wearer the courage to follow their divine path, even into the dark places, where they face their fear and emerge renewed.
Charity: 10% of your purchase price will be donated to nonprofit organizations that support writers of color.
