Yesterday I watched a powerful recap of Oprah's Legends of Selma on Own. I cannot emphasize the power behind the legacy of Dr. King and the many others who risked their lives for and lived a purpose dedicated to civil rights, equal treatment and justice for all mankind. We would be truly remiss if we failed to recognize from whence we came. Their sacrifices give credence to the fact that we have the ability to do great things with our lives and through our callings.
Today I came across this video by Street Etiquette and it's simply brilliant. I applaud the way Joshua and Travis use fashion and history to confront stereotypes, celebrate difference, showcase diversity and turn ideas about black masculinity on their heads. Cheers to continuing the legacy!
