My friend Fiaza has this amazing website called Afro Urbanites creating and connecting events for and about the African Diaspora.
Recently got this off her blog: An urban clothing design store called GOLD COAST TRADING. This is an excerpt i got from the History Section of their website:
1444-We were traded from the gold coast by Europeans x our own African brothers. This trade has changed our world and reshaped our thoughts. Living by European standards throughout the African diaspora we have forgotten what makes our culture powerful, rich and unique. Here we strive for riches and neglect our families, we smile upon others while wishing for their demise, all things associated with the mind frame of those who began this trade.
I think i’m going to order some clothing off this website. Bless up to the emerging and ever persistent new generation of Africans making waves in art + culture + entrepreneurship.
