Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here

Selected for Oprah’s Favorite Things this past holiday season, the company striving to improve racial equity through play was founded by mother-daughter duo Melissa and Esi Orijin after Esi struggled with her confidence of being the only Black girl in her class. This new deal with Target represents a milestone achievement for the brand, which continues to grow its toy line to empower girls like Esi to find self-love and pride in their identity by ensuring representation in their toy boxes.

“We are so excited that Target continues to join us in the journey to diversify the toy aisle. First, the virtual toy aisle, and now in physical stores! We are thrilled that children will be able to experience our products in person,” says Melissa Orijin.

Orijin Bees, also written O.R.I.J.I.N. B.E.E.S, stands for Our Representation is Just Inclusion Normalized, Beautifully Empowering Every Soul. The Orijin Bees Baby Bee doll collection was created to instill self-love during pretend play, helping young girls build the confidence to know their worth and, ultimately, become leaders of the future.
