Eight designers. Six schools. One mission.
We teamed up with Chris Paul and the Social Change Fund United to celebrate HBCUs.
DIEM and LFANT for Florida A&M University
The role HBCU schools played as part of our fabric as African Americans is vital to the empowerment of our brothers and sisters. It was important to me to participate in this collection for many reasons, Ryan and I being chosen to design for FAMU was the icing on the cake because we already knew so much about the institution. The facts we did learn however strengthened our admiration for the school and its purpose for our people. This was an honor to contribute at this high level and also represent the many men and women attending and graduated from FAMU. Hope these pieces make you proud.
- Michael Nicholas, DIEM
Historically Black institutions of higher education teach us about our history while laying the framework for our future. Heritage and legacy are two certainties of an education at an HBCU. FAMU is a school steeped in tradition and excellence since 1887. Though Mike and I contributed our artistic expressions to this project; we left with so much knowledge and a profound appreciation for this university. As artists we come away understanding that this was a gift given to us.
