Unisex SOL Face Mask (Our Country Too LIMITED EDITION)
Designed by visual and performing artist, Brianna Pippens, this Sista Of Liberty is sporting a “VOTE” t-shirt, urging her peers to get out and vote with fierce urgency in the upcoming election. Her ripped jeans feature a kente-cloth trim to pay homage to her African ancestry; and the raised-fists design on her jeans is a salute to the ongoing protests against racial injustice.
This Sista also is rocking braids with cowrie shells. Cowrie shells have served various purposes in many West African cultures, such as for currency and jewelry. An ankh necklace, the ancient Egyptian symbol for life, hangs around her neck.
In lieu of the traditional Statue of Liberty tablet, she holds a protest sign that says, “Our Country Too,” a phrase that we coined to celebrate the significant contribution people of color have made to building this country—both before and since its inception. Lastly, instead of holding a torch, this Sista’s raised fist illuminates the sky and lights the way, symbolizing the pivotal leadership role Black women have played in the fight for racial and gender equality. She raises her fist in support of her fellow Sistas and brothas who have historically been the subjects of systemic oppression. She will not stand for it. This is Her Country Too.
