WITH A VISION TO CELEBRATE THE DEPTH OF BLACK FOLKLORE AND THE FANTASTICAL, JASMINE ESTABLISHED BLACK FAE DAY. THIS ANNUAL EVENT, SET ON THE SECOND SATURDAY OF MAY, IS NOT MERELY A FESTIVITY BUT A BURGEONING MOVEMENT THAT HIGHLIGHTS THE CRITICAL NEED FOR DIVERSITY WITHIN FANTASY. JASMINE TRULY BELIEVES THAT BY JOINING HANDS IN CELEBRATION, WE CAN COLLECTIVELY TURN THE PAGES TOWARD A FUTURE WHERE THE MEDIA WE CONSUME IS AS DIVERSE AS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.
