Summary "An interior design book featuring the stunning homes of those who have made significant contributions to Black American culture-from chef Alexander Smalls to Don Cheadle and Bridgid Coulter to Danielle Brooks. From the creators of the lifestyle brand AphroChic comes an interior design book that steps into the intimate spaces of actors and musicians, creative rooms of artists and curators, generational homes with history, and "boss" offices of entrepreneurs and executives. Throughout, you'll find historical information that sheds light on the Black homeownership gap, serving as a tome of inspiration for anyone who owns a home or wishes to. Exploring Black design through 17 homeowners, the pages of AphroChic resonate with stories of resilience and resistance. Owning a home might represent the American dream, but it's long been out of reach for a large portion of Americans. With tours that feature striking interiors filled with art and cherished heirlooms; stories that explore memories about family and community; and historical sidebars that touch on the obstacles to homeownership many Black Americans face today, AphroChic honors the journey, celebrates success, and envisions the future"-- Provided by publisher.
