About the Daughters of D.I.G. (DOD) Project

Daughters of D.I.G.—Developing Intelligent Girls—is an Oakland-based QPOC-centric tribe of women dedicated to passing on the art of digging for knowledge of self through a healing and transformative creative process.

Currently curated by creative Lexx Valdez (lexxdigs.com) and artist/healer Erricka Lewis (thisblackdaffodil.tumblr.com).

Contributing curators:
Devoya Mayo (devoya.tumblr.com) + Valerie Scott (chiefofaffections.tumblr.com)

Founded by Lexx Valdez and Devoya Mayo of thehappyblackgirl.com in 2008 as Daughters of Dilla.

Our message is inspired by the beat of J.Dilla:
"Don't Sell Yourself to Fall in Love"

Green-housed at Beats Rhymes and Life, Inc. (lexx@brl-inc.org for more info).

I hope you have the courage to pursue someone who is worth pursuing, and not someone who is convenient. Convenience is impatience disguised as your desires, you are worth more than what time has told you, you are worthy of finding someone who will wait for you; don’t settle for what is easy, settle for what is good.

Supersisters Trading Cards


For the dedicated sports fan, a collectible trading card is a glorified and appreciated form of professional athletic recognition. Published in 1979 with a grant from the New York State Education Department, Lois Rich and her sister Barbara Egerman contacted five hundred women of achievement and created cards for the first seventy-two that responded. Inspired by Lois Rich’s (at the time) eight-year-old daughter who was a baseball card collector, she asked her mother why there weren’t any girls on the cards. Supersisters trading cards developed into a playful, informative, and accessible way to spread feminism to younger audiences. Emulating collectible sports cards, the Supersisters were a sold out set with over ten thousand sold. This is a fantastic collection honoring women in a variety of fields while mirroring a timeless form of sports memorabilia.

anxiety is terrible, you could be having an attack and no one would even know because it’s an inward thing. it feels like you’re malfunctioning and you can’t process your own thoughts. you get a knot in your stomach and you can’t take a full breath but outwardly you can literally just sit there and look completely normal as long as no one tries to speak to you.
