Over five years ago, we got annoyed.
Annoyed to the point of taking specific action.
We looked at our two beautiful and intelligent offspring and made a choice.
A vendor selling HBCU gear told us that he did not sell HBCU gear to fit children because, “Lady, maybe you haven’t noticed…kids DON’T carry wallets!”
He then walked out of my face after explaining that is why he only sold shirts to fit adults.
We could have agreed with his assessment of the African American community.
My husband and I thought, “What if Walt Disney felt that away about kids?”
Surely, we must be able to look out and see the RESULTS in our community and agree SOMETHING is not WORKING in our favor.
Rather than criticize, we decided to ORGANIZE.
HBCU kidz, Inc. was born on February 1, 2006.
