It’s a jungle out there! We still have so many geniuses to explore for Truly Genius Tuesday!

It’s March 14… 3/14… whatever way you slice it, it’s Pie Day and Pi Day and Albert Einstein’s birthday! So you’ll have to forgive us but we’ll take any excuse to have pie!

Meet Equiano

Meet the Genius behind our Genius Series print Olaudah Equiano, a man of bravery, courage, and strength.

His first name, Olaudah, means good fortune and symbolizes one who is well-spoken, his writing is a testament to his name, profoundly articulate and full of deep wisdom.
