The Black Box, a quarterly subscription service that provides a direct path to Black-owned business, proudly announces its partnership with EPIX for the launch of the second season of its acclaimed show, “Godfather of Harlem” which premiered on April 18, 2021. As part of the collaboration, the company issued an exclusive box inspired by the show featuring curated items from companies based in Harlem, N.Y.
Called “Bumpy’s Stash,” the commemorative box was distributed to the show’s stars and to top influencers across the country.
“The Black Box is proud to partner with EPIX and “Godfather of Harlem” on the commemorative Bumpy’s Stash, said Talei Hornback, founder, and chief executive officer of The Black Box. “The show highlights Black excellence, not only in the performance of incredible Black actors but also in showcasing Harlem, a hub of Black culture and history. Our goal each quarter with The Black Box is very similar as we also strive each quarter to introduce people to Black excellence through exceptional small businesses. The alliance was seamless.”
This special edition release of The Black Box, created in conjunction with Cashmere Agency in Los Angeles, pays homage to Harlem.
Designed to look like a vintage cigar box, Bumpy’s Stash also features an elaborate chessboard with each piece representing a character in the show.
Fans of the show can play along as Bumpy makes his own moves to take Harlem back. In addition to the imaginative design, Hornback has hand-picked several items that epitomize the Harlem that Bumpy knew. Among them include,
From Marche Rue Dix, a French Senegalese restaurant, cultural concept store, and nail salon located in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Dark and Stormy Tea, a bold black tea with masala, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, and cardamom.
A vintage nightclub map of Harlem coffee mug with an excerpt of E. Simms Campbell’s illustration of Harlem nightlife during the Renaissance period from The Harlem Candle Company, a luxury home fragrance brand founded in 2014 by travel and lifestyle expert Teri Johnson.
A golden brownstone chocolate bar from The Harlem Chocolate Factory, a company designed to convey the cultural experiences of Harlem through chocolate.
The golden brownstone chocolate bar was listed as one of “Oprah’s Favorite Things” in 2020.
“For me, the inspiration behind The Black Box was to create something meaningful, and it has meant so much for me to be able to share to a wider audience these incredible products from Black businesses making a difference in their community,” said Hornback.
