fashion

From the rivers of Africa, to the street corners of Harlem, to the bayou's of New Orleans, fashion has always created an illustrative and necessary identity amongst the Black community. It is the subset of American culture rooted in African traditions that has permeated amongst the culture for centuries. 

Today, style shaped by the African Diaspora is ubiquitous in fashion for people of all colors, races and creeds which is why we highlight the innovators, celebrate the legends, and educate the future.

"Artists are the gatekeepers to truth, they are civilizations radical voice."
- Paul Robeson

Art has always been a secret language beyond just creative expression. Its variety and beauty have been the backdrop for recognition and independence as a Black community. The broader revolution as

THE VIRTUAL LOUDSPEAKER

is to shift museums, academia, and communities to move the artistic lens past the narrow Eurocentric, predominantly male version of all forms of art in its holdings and exhibitions.
