There are too many inspirational ancestors to mention, both famous historical ones like Marcus Garvey and Dr Frances Cress Welsing, but also more personal ones like Jill Henry and Sarah Henry.
Our #LEGACY collection is inspired by my mum Jill Henry, click here to find out more.
Dr Frances Cress Welsing said that she wouldn't rest until All Black Children are taught to love themselves, as themselves..This resonates, although we would widen that to all Black people as we still see too much 'self-hate' within our community.
Viola Davis, in her recent Vanity Fair interview (Jul 20) stated that 'My whole life has been a protest!', this definitely resonated and was the inspiration behind our 'My Whole Life has been a Protest' collection.
