A Juneteenth Collaboration by WISDOM x Wishatl
Being American but feeling disconnected to the word Liberty Is the reason we reclaim and celebrate “Black Liberty”.
"When I think of the word Liberty honestly I don’t think of me. and I think a lot of black people feel the same way. I think it’s important to reclaim what Liberty is for Black America. If you look at the Statue of Liberty you’ll find that the original Lady Liberty was a Black Woman carved in France to symbolize the Liberation of black people from slavery. I wanted to play on that by redesigning the Statue of Liberty as my Mom because to me she gave me liberty to allow me to be who I am which is freedom. That’s what this collection is about Black Liberty."
