BLM // Black AF

$15.50

Displaying the date 06-19-1865, Juneteenth- the date Black Americans acknowledge as the end of slavery and day we received our quasi-freedom, this enamel pin celebrates Black lives and the Black pursuit of freedom. Hashtags included on this pin: #BlackAF and #BLM

Black Lives Matter. Period. There is no “but” that follows that statement. Black lives are  worthy, incomparable,  powerful, and necessary.

“I think part of it is accepting that it’s so much beauty in being black and that’s the thing that, I guess, I get emotional about because I’ve always known that. I’ve always been proud to be black. Never wanted to be nothing else. Loved everything about it…” -Tina Knowles-Lawson

A few quotes we love to see:

“There is never a time in the future in which we will work out our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now.”
– James Baldwin

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” – Alice Walker

“I need to see my own beauty and to continue to be reminded that I am enough, that I am worthy of love without effort, that I am beautiful, that the texture of my hair and that the shape of my curves, the size of my lips, the color of my skin, and the feelings that I have are all worthy and okay.” -Tracee Ellis Ross

“If you stick a knife in my back nine inches and pull it out six inches, there’s no progress. If you pull it all the way out that’s not progress. Progress is healing the wound that the blow made. And they haven’t even pulled the knife out much less heal the wound. They won’t even admit the knife is there.” -Malcolm X

“I’m going to tell it like it is. I hope you can take it like it is.” – Malcolm X
