I love my culture. Recently, I did an Ancestry.com DNA test and discovered that I am 75% CoiteD’voire/Ghanian/Malian/Nigerian and 22% British/French/German. So while I am thankful for all the cultures that have come together to make me the person I am, I am extremely excited about the African part. As you know in American culture, African Americans know nothing about their ancestors prior to the induction of slavery. I cried when I received the results. So excuse my ethnocentric ways at the moment, but I am deeply happy about my findings.
I also love stickers. I believe they are the alternative method of graffiti tagging, for those of us who are too chicken to break the law and vandalize with traditional spray paint.
In celebration of the coming Juneteenth, the final round of legal abolishment of slavery in America, I decided to design images to reflect and embrace the black culture as I know it.
Please visit my store and buy the “Juneteenth” pack or any other sticker that moves you to purchase. CLICK, HERE!
