Black Bourgeois is a clothing brand that represents me and my beliefs on a social and political level. The name has many meanings. First, it is a play on the book by E. Franklin Frazier "Black Bourgeoisie". Also, it ties into being called "bougie" by my friends and associates for most of my life. I wanted to take the word and the negative connotation it carries and embrace it.
My goal is to bridge the gap between disenfranchised and the "bougie" through my brand and other community-based initiatives. Fashion is powerful. Black is powerful.
Welcome to Black Bourgeois. This is just the beginning!
