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.
