Celebrating Black Male Fashion & Style

by Janet Dickerson

On Thursday, June 1st at the Brooklyn Museum, the Campaign for Black Male Achievement and Aperture Foundation celebrated Black men’s style as a form of personal politics with a night of fashion, film, and music, organized in honor of author Shantrelle P. Lewis’s new book, Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style.

Featuring a panel discussion moderated by CBMA Vice President for Communications Rashid Shabazz, the evening explored the art and style of Black Dandies -- men of African descent who use fashion to define and inhabit a proud, radically independent public persona. Watch the livestream below!
