Vision & Values
We Reflect, Respect, Appreciate and Understand the Black Community.
Our focus is on the promotion of positive representation and self identity within the Black Community.
We believe that the constant bombardment of negative images/media coverage of our community is detrimental to our growth and our own self perception.
Our core clothing range is EPIC designed to Empower, Promote, Inspire and Change the narrative for the Black Community by way of positive, uplifting and motivational images and slogans.
Our BlackLikeMe Children's Collection aims to provide Black Children with characters that look like them and that promote a sense of pride and belief in self and lets them know that they are EPIC - Enough, Powerful, Incredible & Clever!
Positive sense of self that breeds confidence, which in the words of Marcus Moziah Garvey, ' With confidence, half the battle is won'.
Our values are EPIC!
Empowering Positive Inspiring Conscious.
