one race: the human race
right now, America is in very dark times. George Floyd's death was a breaking point and marks the beginning of a movement; not just Black Lives Matter, but also changing the broken government system. protesting is one way to support this movement, but it can be dangerous, so donations and petitions are other ways you can help. I wanted to do more, so I began researching black run fashion brands and businesses that are amazing. these founders are super inspiring and their clothes and products are stylish and cute. supporting their brands right now and everyday is crucial! we can all get through this by lifting each other up instead of bringing each other down. "when the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace." happy shopping!

All of these founders have built their own businesses and create products that relate to their roots but are fashion forward simultaneously. I hope that you could look into each of their brands and possibly purchase any items that you like. If you would like to support more black owned businesses, the following articles will guide you:
Sign petitions, protest, use your social media platform, do whatever you can to support this movement. Thank you.
