Inspiration: This piece reflects the mental oppression that blacks have had to endure, while also celebrating our influence in history. The extended sleeve on the jacket portrays a "straight-jacket", which represents psychological warfare that the system has created to destroy our mental capabilities and our knowledge of self. Yet, the sleeves have straps that allow you to pull them up and secure them as a symbolic reflection of breaking free from mental oppression.
The cross body design of the jacket is a modern view of historical clothing worn by apostles, the sashes that came across the body. This represents our heavy influence in historical and biblical history.
On the back of the jacket are free hanging straps that each represent tests and trials we have had to endure that have become apart of who we are. Everyone's straps might be different, each strap may have a different manner of influence (which is displayed in the various lengths of straps). Finally, blacks have a history of taking those trials and tribulations and wearing them proudly because they have strengthened us in some fashion!
