Black Santa Co. was founded by Baron Davis to inspire others and celebrate diversity through animated storytelling, popular music, and charitable events. Black Santa encourages people from all backgrounds to connect during the holidays and participate by giving back to their respective communities. U Wish’s Black Santa books continue to tell positive stories to audiences of all ages by using characters that reflect many different cultures as well as creative animation and current holiday hits. Additionally, U Wish’s Black Santa will release its annual mixtape following a month-long schedule of toy drives, concerts, and other charitable events at the Jack London Square Pop-Up for neighborhoods in need.
