After multiple deadly shootings of black people by law enforcement in the U.S., 100-Y Hoodie seeks to bring awareness to racial disparities, injustice and discriminatory practices by federal and state controlled law enforcement agencies towards black people. An exercise deeply rooted in our country’s foundations.
An attempt to illuminate the systemic inequalities black people face, and highlight everyone’s present and future role, in making progress in a system which has favored white people for centuries.
Why is it called 100 Year Hoodie? It lasts a lifetime.
The 100-Y Hoodie isn't real, but sadly it should be.
