The Meaning of Fourth Of July For The Negro

As most Americans begins to fire up their grills and cherish the trivial and vile history of America's independence, we at FreeDUMB Apparel believe its imperative that we look at history and resurrect the words of our ancestors for guidance. We not only believe in producing revolutionary, thought-provoking apparel, but we also believe it is important for us to educate oppressed people of color in America and abroad. Please watch this video and share your thoughts below.
