Christine Platt is a modern-day Renaissance woman also known as The Afrominimalist.
From serving as an advocate for policy reform to using the power of storytelling as a tool for social change, Christine’s work reflects her practice of living with intention. She holds a B.A. in Africana Studies, M.A. in African-American Studies, and a J.D. in General Law. Christine has written over two dozen literary works for people of all ages. When she’s not writing, Christine spends her time curating her 630 sq. ft. home, chronicling her journey, and encouraging others to live with more authenticity and intention.
Christine’s most recent book, THE AFROMINIMALIST’S GUIDE TO LIVING WITH LESS, is a radical re-envisioning of minimalism that focuses on authenticity over aesthetics. A resource for anyone seeking to discover the truth behind their overconsumption as well as how to let go of what no longer serves them, THE AFROMINIMALIST’S GUIDE TO LIVING WITH LESS encourages us to be intentional, mindful consumers so our lives are filled with only those things we need, use, and love.
Christine is a member of the Association of Black Women Historians, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, and serves as an Ambassador for Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
