Negritude Republic is a lifestyle brand that I have been working on in my spare time for a while now and I’m ready to bring my work out to the public and launch! Originally I had chosen the name ‘Kulture ID”, but soon realized that title isn’t really representative of anything I wanted the brand to be about.  And then came ‘Negritude Republic’ Negritude is a literary and ideological movement, developed by black intellectuals, it is a cultural movement and awakening of race consciousness, rooted in a (re)discovery of the authentic self. it is a way of living history within history: the history of a community whose experience appears to be… unique, with its deportation of populations, its transfer of people from one continent to another, its distant memories of old beliefs, its fragments of murdered cultures. How can we not believe that all this, which has its own coherence, constitutes a heritage?

I try not to really think of past or future, but to make the most of the instinct that’s happening in the moment, to me that’s where individuality lies. I learned and got the notion from Sun Ra and cats like that, for sure. I see these guys, who we call Afrofuturists, to be masters of the now.
