Dapper & The Struggle

His knowledge of civil rights runs deep and true. Even though he grew up in London, his father exposed the little dapper to the struggles for equal rights in the U.S. as it had some bearing on civil unrest in the UK in the 80’s.

On a pleasant spring afternoon, he was stopped in his tracks when he saw a series of photographs exploring iconic moments from black American history, exhibited on the fence of a U.S. embassy.

There were photos of the Tuskegee Airmen, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Malcom X, Jackie Robinson and the 1964 march in Selma.

Given the recent events in the news, he took the time to read and admire the endeavour of individuals who decided to take a stand. Some with peaceful means and some, with any means necessary.

He stared and stared. He became so engaged with the style of the suits in the photos, he started to imagine his surroundings in black and white.

The strong sense of pride married seamlessly with an equally strong sense of style.
