Malcolm X’s daughters are launching a clothing line!
The daughters of Malcolm X are launching a clothing line that they hope will keep his legacy and revolutionary spirit alive. Qubililah, Ilaysah, Attalliah, Malikah, Malaak, and Gamillah Lumumba Shabazz are working with technology company Hingento to create the clothing line, which is intended to honor the 12 principles of their father, the legendary Black human rights activist, Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik Shabazz).
According to the official website, the 12 principles are: Unity, Human Rights, Self-Sacrifice, Spirituality, Self-Determination, Education, Economic Independence, Self Defense, Anti Racism, Cultural Pride, Restoration, and finally, Justice.
A notable co-sign has already materialized in the form of one Colin Kaepernick, who—according to the CEO of Hingento, Leandrew Robinson—was alongside one of Malcolm X’s daughters in a full day meeting in New York City. Kaepernick has also used his social media platform to amplify tweets from the official site’s Twitter account announcing the launch of the collection which offers t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and has plans to roll out artwork soon.
Here’s a look at some of the merchandise:
Looks like the legacy will indeed be living on.
