The Incredable History!

Robert Smalls (1839-1915) was a 19th-century African American who made a name for himself as a war hero, sailor, abolitionist, politician, and Congressman.

Born into slavery in South Carolina, Smalls was an enslaved sailor who used his familiarity with ship operations to commandeer a Confederate transport ship during the Civil War. He successfully navigated it past Confederate defenses, delivering it, and valuable information about Confederate fortifications and weapons, to the Union army thus freeing himself and other enslaved individuals aboard.

After the war, Smalls served in the South Carolina state legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives, becoming one of the first African Americans elected to Congress. He fought for the rights of African Americans, working towards their political, social, and economic equality.

  • 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.
