I like the kind of hair

that will stand up for its rights

the kind that kicks

screams and protests.

the kind that resists

and boycotts with every coil

the kind that fights

riots and rebels.

the kind that won’t

be quiet for nobody.

the kind that won’t

be anything but black.

the kind that refuses

to relax.

Lamont Lilly, fragment from Honor in the Ghetto

“With my brands, I wanna promote self-love, motivate people to appreciate themself.

I do this by embracing my differences; my African Roots.

Designing prints is my way to show my cultural appreciation, my way to accept myself so I can be me.”
