Five Black students receive inaugural Black Lives Matter Scholarships from Mackenzie-Childs

Home décor brand MacKenzie-Childs has selected the five winners of its inaugural MacKenzie-Childs Black Lives Matter Scholarship for Design.

Recognizing the importance of education, MacKenzie-Childs launched the scholarship program to help Black students pursuing their future careers in the arts and design. Students had to submit an essay about where they find inspiration for their art and creativity and how they see that shaping their future. The winners are: Guidance Gunundu, Tai Campbell, Amuri Morris, Javier Evans and Temesgen Besha. They will each be awarded $5,000 to put towards higher education.

MackKenzie-Childs believes design impacts almost everything around us and it should thrive in nontraditional forms, it said. The newly dubbed “MacKenzie-Childs Scholars” work across, and find inspiration in, a number of unique platforms and fields, from film and fine art to engineering.

Each MacKenzie-Childs Scholar shared a quote about what design means to them:

  • Gunundu: “Design empowers me to tell my story in a uniquely visual way. It inspires me to empower generations and effectively depict my history, culture, surroundings and my creativity.”
  • Campbell: “Design is one of the only things that allows me to freely express myself. It inspires me to use creativity not only as an outlet

It is a brief drive from Columbus, located about 20 miles east in Newark, Ohio. Gardening has taken on a new depth of meaning in latest months: It may possibly present solace, escape, an unmatched sense of accomplishment, or literally put meals on the desk at a time when that’s not at all times a certain thing. Never have planting, pruning, tending, and amending felt extra important. Yes, gardens reply to what efforts we put into them, however we also respond in type.

I grew up with flower gardens and thought that I’d give vegetable gardening a strive. My dad taught me all the pieces I do know, and with his inexperienced thumb genes in me as properly I imagine my household will quickly have it is personal backyard. Thanks, Calico Stark. I agree that visuals are …
