The concrete Rose is a reflection of the African American struggle for survival in the United States. Everything that was meant to destroy the community. They have still been able to stand strong. This is 100% cotton of course which represents the cotton picked in the core of slavery. The green rose stem is functional and rooted but still can prick you for its protection. The black fist represents the unity of the culture The Underground Railroad, Civil rights, Hip hop, etc… All created in the colors of the African Flag. Whether for black History month Juneteenth or just plain daily pride! This is bigger than a T-shirt’s.
