How the Civil Rights Movement Influenced Style

as my family and I toured The Kings Center Memorial over the weekend I begun to take note of how style was integrated during such a time when African Americans were fighting to be treated fairly.

Despite the turmoil, people still found a way to express their individual style. From marching in the streets of Alabama to Rosa Parks being finger printed in a tailored fitted skirt, their circumstances didn’t deter their style of dress. Have you ever wondered how such an era for African Americans still finds it way to influence style today.

i,myself like Fedoras and a pencil skirt but I also enjoy street style with rugged jeans and boots.
