These past couple of weeks have been hard for our culture. Our lives do matter and yes it is crazy that the hashtag and movement even has to exist. You can be killed at the hands of someone that is supposed to protect you at any moment. It is a haunting feeling that makes you doubt your importance in society. Well, no more doubting and no more hiding. Let’s show the world that we are hella black and hella proud by shopping at these boutiques and online stores.

Gloss Rags is Randi Gloss’ clothing line and media brand dedicated to honoring the many black men and women who have fell victim to police killings.

Founded in 2011, BlackNUgly was designed to be pro-black and represent both the trials and triumphs of the black culture.

We are raw, bold and uncut while remaining social and politically conscious. All of BU’s designs have a significant meaning behind them; no aesthetic is pointless. We aim to inspire and educate the young kings and queens of today and tomorrow.
