The Story Behind The Book

Dope & Dangerous is more than a book, it's an effort by a young creative couple to use their talents to help pay off their student loans while encouraging literacy and design through a social justice lens.


Oliver & Sy

The Creators

She's the designer, strategist, and planner. Me? I'm just the wordsmith. I came to her with over a year's worth of poems and I told her I wanted to put together a book. Of course, like all black women, she amplified my idea by a trillion. Thus, Dope & Dangerous was born.

We are so excited to be able to share this collaboration of poetry and design with you!
