Black is serious, black is a feeling, black is us, the beautiful people. -Blackstar
Out of this quote is where our “A Better Tomorrow” capsule was born. To celebrate Black History Month this year, we chose to honor figures who not only inspired change in American history, but also are still alive today. Through a capsule consisting completely of graphic t-shirts, we elevated the likenesses of Marcus Garvey, Blackstar, and June Jordan representing the arenas of poetry, music, and film. To bring our ideas to life, we enlisted quotes by each individual artist.
