Tamu McPherson Celebrated Juneteenth With A Short Video Celebrating Black Fashion, Literature & Art



Tamu McPherson just shared an uber comprehensive (but not exhaustive!) style guide to buying black owned from fashion brands (like Tongoro and Lisa Folawiyo  Studio ) to literature to read and art to immerse ourselves in and we are so impressed!

On her IGTV channel she shared:

Ode to Blackness

Happy Juneteenth Pretty Birds!
One of the best ways to honor our community is by amplifying their voices and spending money on Black-owned businesses. I put together a selection of outfits, art and literature featuring Black authors, artists and fashion designers over on @alltheprettybirdsofficial.
