Straight out of Chicago

Earlier this summer a Chicago artist (A homie of mine)named,Kweli sent me some of THEE DOPEST bracelets ever.... When he told me he was going to send me one,I never expected these! I instantly fell in love ...

Kweli is the owner of a Chicago based company called, ShiKahGoh Designs. He specializes in handmade paracord and beaded bracelets. I think my favorite part of my bracelets were the unique beads which turn heads every time I wear them,to the the point of people wanting to buy them off me!

When I asked Kweli to give me a few words about his business he said ,'SHIKAHGOH312 is a Jewelry/Accessories brand based from Chicago, IL.We strive to Swag out your wrist game'

I have to say this one is my favorite,I'm sure you can guess why.....

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
