I will be officially launching Black University ( @blackuniversityinspired ) April 1, 2019!
Black university, is an apparel brand that Merges reading literacy with black culture and professional development for black educators. As a current graduate student and educator, I’ve often felt that I was being punished for the same reason I was hired: Being Black. To progress in an effective manner, my mission for B-U is to educate through the lens of my culture. Emphasizing growth through literacy because reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary. •
This quarter launch is Stereotyped with an emphasis on the verb “defy,” Defy (verb)- openly resist or refuse to obey. make (an action or quality) almost impossible. (Challenge, defeat).
One stereotype centers around black women/men not teaching their children and or not wanting to teach as a profession. To defy that, We teach and WE teach through the lens of our culture. •
P.S. In efforts to support my official launch , I’ve entered the fed ex #smallbusinessgrant and with all your help I can potientially
