Oubria, Oubria

Melanated Classic Tarot


An inclusive alternative to the traditional Rider Waite Smith Deck, by Julia Goolsby & Oubria Tronshaw.

Various races and nationalities practice tarot for healing and education, but it's hard to heal and learn with tools that don't represent you.

This deck is a solution to that problem.

Pamela Colman-Smith (Pixie), the artist who drew all the original imagery in the traditional Rider Waite Smith deck, was believed to be a bi-racial woman of American and Jamaican descent.  Inspired by her work, Oubria and Goolsby have reimagined the characters and imagery Colman-Smith created, as she may have wanted them portrayed; a reflection of herself.

All scenes, symbolism, and clothing are the same as those in the original Rider Waite 
Smith, but Black.
