Being a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and an advocate for the African American community go hand in hand for Jazmyne. Though some of her collegiate experiences were less than favorable, she didn’t want that to stop her calling out the wrongs she viewed and endured.
In order to speak against some of the negative stereotypes associated with BGLOs and the African-American community, Jazmyne decided to make her jacket a walking protest. After doing some research on our company, she knew we would be able to assist with her goals. We took one of our stock images, and with Jazmyne’s input, created a design that would embody the platforms she stood for. The women were styled to resemble the women who marched before her in the 60s and 70s, as well as modern day advocates.
Jazmyne hasn’t had the opportunity to wear her jacket at her school, but she looks forward to being able to shut the campus down.
