About Us

Black Child Clothing, is a Chicago native company. The term "Black Child" is inspired from the very notable poem, written by Useni Eugene Perkins, entitled, "Hey Black Child". Mr. Perkins wrote this poem to challenge the black communities perception of self, in hopes to inspire them to create a better future. Our team wishes to further Mr. Perkins vision into today’s generation, as we take pivotal moments within black culture and creatively express them through fashion! Ultimately to do one of two things, either teach or remind you who we really are!
