Kaymara is the lead curator and CEO of Decentred Lit, a quarterly Caribbean-based book subscription box. She is passionate about equitable access to literature and the representation of BIPOC voices. Although Kaymara is hell-bent on dismantling racist publishing practices she often does not have the energy and bandwidth required. After all, racism is exhausting.
As “lead” Djèlífish, you can find Kaymara – on any given Sunday- screaming about Ring Shout and The Black God’s Drums.
In past lives, Kaymara has been an economist, an archaeologist, a historian and a teacher; she currently assists with programming for FIYAHCON.
She does not wish to be perceived.
As a Caribbean-based brand, Decentred Lit will be donating proceeds from their sales to earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.
100% of all proceeds from their Merch Store until December 31, 2021 will go to Zanmi Lasante.
20% of all proceeds from their Adult and Young Adult Subscriptions until March 31, 2022 will go to Hope for Haiti.
