The Incredable History!

Wearable buttons played a surprisingly significant role during the Civil Rights Era, serving as powerful tools for activism, expression, and community building. Their affordability and ease of production made them accessible to a wide range of participants, allowing individuals to proudly proclaim their support for the movement and visually identify others who shared their beliefs. These small circles of metal and enamel served as silent yet potent statements, sparking conversations, fostering solidarity, and creating a sense of belonging among activists. Beyond individual expression, buttons functioned as miniature billboards, conveying powerful messages like "Freedom Now" or "Black is Beautiful," raising awareness, and amplifying the movement's demands for racial equality. In a time when overt resistance often came at a steep personal cost, these wearable symbols offered a relatively safe yet impactful way to declare one's stance and contribute to the collective fight for justice. Though small, buttons left an indelible mark on the Civil Rights Movement, forever tied to the era's struggles and triumphs.

  • A Culture Vulture Free Zone

    Look, we're all for inclusion and the diverse celebration of Black History. However, it has become increasingly common for NON Black-owned companies to sell Black Culture while also falsely claiming to be Black-owned. This practice of cultural appropriation is not only dishonest but also disrespectful to the Black community. By profiting off of Black culture without actually supporting or empowering Black-owned businesses, these companies perpetuate systemic inequality and contribute to the erasure of Black voices and perspectives. It is important for consumers to do their research and support authentic Black-owned businesses that prioritize social justice, equity, and circulation of the Black dollar; rather than those that simply capitalize on the latest cultural trends.
