Black Child Clothing, established January 2015, is a Chicago native company.  The term "Black Child" is inspired by Useni Eugene Perkins poem, "Hey Black Child". During the Harlem Renaissance Movement, Mr. Perkins wrote this poem to challenge the negative perception of how black people viewed themselves. My team and I wish to further Mr. Perkins vision by taking pivotal moments within black culture and creatively express them through fashion. Ultimately to do one of two things, either teach or remind the black community of the beautiful culture we come from. See the attached video:
