STREET SIGNS: Renowned Retools, Reemerges Ready for Future

All it takes is one item to help propel a brand forward. John Dean knows that feeling well.
The founder and chief executive officer of Los Angeles-based streetwear brand Renowned started his company when he was still in Ohio in high school, selling a $ 10 shirt with a somewhat crudely drawn “Renowned” on it. It wasn’t until a T-shirt he sent to Chris Brown’s stylist ended up being worn by Brown on the cover of Nylon in 2013 that the brand gained notoriety.
“I didn’t know how the game worked where brands send boxes and boxes of clothes to celebrities,” Dean said. “I sent one T-shirt. I didn’t know any better, but he wore it on the cover of Nylon. It really caused a spark. We went from not knowing what wholesale was to being in 20 stores.”
He ultimately decided to stop studying business marketing his junior year of college, opting instead to drive four days to Los Angeles to focus on building his business. Brown continued to wear Renowned and, in 2015, the two teamed for the rapper’s “Between the Sheets” tour, for which Dean designed all the merchandise, in addition to Brown’s onstage pieces.
Reality settled in and, while buyers were

Rev. Jesse Jackson and Black Leaders Discuss The Wealth Gap at the Wall Street Project Economic Summit

The Rainbow PUSH Coalition and Citizenship Education Fund’s 22nd Annual Wall Street Project Economic Summit kicked off with a bang on Wednesday, with moving speeches and remarks from a host of dynamic leaders. Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr., the founder of the Rainbow PUSH Wall Street Project, opened the three-day conference by addressing this year’s conference theme, “400 Years Later: Closing the Wealth Gap, Expanding Opportunity.” Although slavery was abolished 150 years ago, a stark disparity in wealth between black and white households continues to persist.

“African Americans have journeyed through four stages of a 400-year struggle,” said the civil rights leader. “Stage one – ending slavery after 246 years in bondage; Stage two – ending the Jim Crow era with its mass lynchings and terror campaigns; Stage three – securing the right to vote; and currently, Stage four – securing access to capital, industry, technology and deal flow in the U.S. economy.”

Closing The Gap

Day one of the summit commenced with the “400 Year Journey Roundtable” discussion, where Jackson was joined by Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Coles, Ph.D., the president of the National Council of Negro Women, and Dr. Ron Daniels, Ph.D., the president of the Institute of the Black World 21st Century, for a conversation on the progress of black Americans since Africans were first brought to the country as slaves.

racial wealth gap

After that session, Marc H. Morial, the president and CEO of the National Urban League, opened the “Wealth Gap Panel” with a brief history lesson on the origins of the wealth gap, which is rooted in U.S. laws and policies that created systemic barriers that prevented people of color from accumulating wealth. Morial went on to address the controversy around the #ADOS movement, a fringe group that stands for American Descendants of Slaves and advocates for reparations and reform policies that solely benefit African Americans. Some critics reportedly believe that Russian trolls have infiltrated the group and are using their philosophy to cause division among black voters.

“The internet is being used as a tool of manipulation,” Morial cautioned. “Our ability to impact the racial wealth gap depends on our ability to exercise and maximize our political power. We need to maximize our political power if we are going to address the racial gap.”

Wall Street Project Economic Summit

Morial’s comments were followed by a panel discussion between BLACK ENTERPRISE’s SVP/ Executive Editor-at-Large Alfred A. Edmond Jr. and Eugene Mitchell, the founder of the E. Mitchell Consulting Group and the author of The 7 Untold Rules for Creating Black Wealth: Let’s Come Together and Close the Wealth Gap!, moderated by Janice L. Mathis, the executive director of the National Council of Negro Women. Each panelist discussed tangible solutions to close the gap.

“Spend less than you make—whatever you make—and bank the difference,” said Edmond. “We must get into a situation where we are incrementally and steadily accumulating assets in the form of savings. And right now, when we make more money, we spend more money.”

Edmond, the host of the “Your Money, Your Life” personal finance podcast, also stressed the importance of using debt with the purpose of driving wealth. “We need to create wealth out of any career. Your net worth is what you own minus what you owe. Debt is only good if you are going to take that resource to make more money.”

Mitchell, a former corporate vice president at New York Life Insurance Co., discussed the importance of life insurance and estate planning as vehicles to create generational wealth in the black community. “We’re not doing what it takes to create wealth, to keep wealth, and to sustain wealth in the way of having proper estate planning,” he said.

Mathis also emphasized the intersection between political power and economic strength in the black community. “If we’re going to defeat these wealth gaps, we will do it by using the power of our votes because these systems are entrenched like barnacles onto capitalism that needs to be moderated by democratic principles and ideals.”

Other notable speakers scheduled to appear at the conference include Rep. Maxine Waters, Susan L. Taylor, Rev. Al Sharpton, hip-hop mogul Percy “Master P” Miller, and John W. Rogers Jr., CEO of Ariel Investments.

This is what London street style looked like before Instagram

Another season of London Fashion Week is almost over, and with it another season of cool street style looks that will no doubt set the trends for SS19. But whilst we’re now used to seeing them all over social media (if it didn’t go on Instagram, did you even wear it?), that wasn’t always the case.

Ever wondered what Londoners wore in the 20s or 30s, or even the 50s? Well wonder no more, because Ancestry, which specialises in family history, just shared their fashion records with us.

This includes fashion shows dating back to 1916, including images of London’s best-dressed woman of 1937 – Rosita Forbes – sporting the year’s biggest trend of wide leg trousers, an Ascot riverside parade in Richmond, the evolution of the Crinoline, top models learning new makeup tricks and more. Scroll down to see these and more pics.

A riverside parade of Ascot fashions attracted a large audience at Richmond. The parade was held on the terrace of Mary Childs overlooking the Thames. A parade of Ascot fashions by the riverside at Richmond Bridge.

Richmond Governor Scandal May Help Bid To Rename Street For Arthur Ashe

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A movement to rename a Richmond, Virginia, thoroughfare for groundbreaking black tennis player Arthur Ashe Jr. is cresting just as the state finds itself in turmoil over a blackface scandal involving the governor and attorney general.

The man behind the street renaming says the confluence of the two unrelated developments involving race and history could become an opportunity to start a conversation about race at a pivotal time.

“If we can rename the Boulevard after him, it would be a huge cultural step forward. This is where we can start with reconciliation and we can start talking about the issues,” says Ashe’s nephew, David Harris Jr.

“It would be an opportunity for the City Council to be leaders on this. We know what’s going on down the street at the state Capitol. This would be a way for the City Council to say, ‘We want to show you the way.’”

Ashe’s once-segregated hometown boasts an athletic center named after him, and a bronze sculpture of Ashe sits among Richmond’s many Confederate statues. But a proposal to rename a historic street for Ashe has been defeated twice since his death in 1993.

A third proposal comes before the City Council for a vote Monday amid the blackface scandal .

Leaders throughout Virginia’s political structure have called on Gov. Ralph Northam to resign after a racist photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page surfaced recently.

Northam apologized, initially saying he appeared in a photo showing one man in blackface and another wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood and robe. Northam did not say which costume he wore. The next day he said he no longer believed he was in the photo but acknowledged wearing blackface the same year to look like Michael Jackson in a dance contest.

Days after Northam’s admission, Attorney General Mark Herring was forced to acknowledge that he, too, wore blackface in the 1980s while trying to look like a rapper at a college party.

Meanwhile, for all of Richmond’s hometown pride in Ashe, repeated attempts to rename a city street after him have failed. Harris initially resurrected the idea of renaming the street after his uncle last year.

Called simply “Boulevard,” it’s a busy 2.4-mile (3.9-kilometer) stretch dotted with restaurants, museums and stately homes. Modeled after grand European boulevards in the late 19th century, Boulevard was designated as a state and national historic landmark in 1986.

At one end sits Byrd Park, with tennis courts where Ashe was denied access during his childhood because of segregation. The athletic center named for Ashe is also on Boulevard.

City Council member Kim Gray, whose district covers a portion of Boulevard, has sponsored the Ashe renaming ordinance.

Some residents and business owners say they don’t want to change the historic name. Others cite the inconvenience and expense of officially changing their address, including getting new letterhead and signs.

Harris and Gray say they understand those concerns but also believe racism may underlie some of the opposition.

“I find it hard to believe that people get that angry over stationery,” said Gray, who said she’s received racist emails over the proposal.

Longtime residents insist they have nothing but admiration for Ashe but believe there are better ways to honor him than legally changing the name of their street. A group called the Boulevard Coalition wants the Richmond History and Culture Commission to hold citywide community discussions about how to honor Ashe and then make a recommendation to the City Council.

The controversy comes at a time when Richmond, a one-time capital of the Confederacy, has been grappling with calls to remove Confederate statues. Richmond’s Monument Avenue features statues of five Confederate figures, including Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Ashe’s statue was erected among those rebel icons in 1996, but only after rancorous debate.

Harris said renaming Boulevard after Ashe would give Richmond a chance to shed its past image and show it has become a progressive city.

“We’ve celebrated things that have been associated with slavery for years. Well, let’s celebrate equality, inclusion and diversity, as opposed to the slave picture we’ve had in Civil War history,” Harris said.

Ashe was the first black player selected to the U.S. Davis Cup team and the only black man to ever win the singles title at the U.S. Open, Wimbledon and the Australian Open. He was also well-known for promoting education and civil rights, opposing apartheid in South Africa and raising awareness about AIDS, the disease that eventually killed him.

Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney urged the City Council last month to approve the change, calling Ashe “one of Richmond’s true champions.”

A 2004 city ordinance says street names indicated on city maps for 50 years or longer should only be changed under “exceptional circumstances.” Gray and Harris say they believe naming Boulevard after Ashe is one of those circumstances.

But City Council member Parker Agelesto, whose district covers part of the street, said his constituents favor an “honorary renaming” that keeps Boulevard as the street’s official name.

“Nobody wants this to be controversial, and Arthur Ashe is not a controversial figure,” Agelesto said. “The question is: How do you make it successful for all parties involved?”

STREET SIGNS: How WeSC Transitioned From Mall Brand to Contemporary Streetwear Line

When Joseph Janus joined WeSC seven years ago as chief executive officer of the American business, the Swedish streetwear brand, which is named We Are Superlative Conspiracy, was being produced and distributed by its U.S. licensee Oved Apparel Group. Like most streetwear and skate lines at the time, the brand was focused on mass distribution in retailers such as Tillys, Zumiez and PacSun.
But Janus, who has previously worked for brands including Calvin Klein, Guess and JNCO, sensed a shift coming in the market and knew he would have to slowly make WeSC more premium.
“I wanted to bridge the gap between traditional streetwear and luxury,” said Janus. “How do we get into better department stores and grow up with our consumer who is starting to mix luxury items into their wardrobe?”
In 2013 the brand bought back its U.S. license and created an independent American subsidiary and Janus was charged with growing business in the U.S. Over the course of the last few years, he’s made small shifts to get the company, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, where it is today.
Step one was slowly increasing the price points and changing the distribution from mall stores to better department stores. Janus

Coronation Street fans in tears as Sinead Tinker breaks down over dying before her baby son can remember her

CORONATION Street fans are in tears after Sinead Tinker broke down after she realised she could die from cancer and wouldn’t see her baby son grow up.

The seamstress – who is played by actress Katie McGlynn in the ITV soap – sobbed in fear of her son never knowing who she is in tonight’s second episode.

Sinead had viewers in tears tonight as she wept over her baby boy

The doctors told Sinead and her husband Daniel Osbourne that baby Bertie was almost out of the woods with his bowel condition.

“No surgery needed, it’s all good,” the nurse told them both.

But while it was good news for the baby, Sinead had a heartbreaking reaction.

A tearful Sinead told Daniel: “What if I die Daniel?

Bertie’s bowel condition hadn’t worsened and the nurses were confident he would be OK
Daniel tried his best to reassure his wife over her fears

“Like you said before he’s not going to remember this.

“He’s not going to remember me. I’m just going to be a photo of a stranger.

“I just can’t bear the thought he won’t know how much I loved him. I wanted to bake him birthday cakes, take him to school…”

And as she sobbed Daniel insisted it would all be fine and she would recover and be able to do all that.


But fans were already crying over Katie’s performance as terrified Sinead.

One said: “Poor Sinead, please don’t panic Sinead such a tiny baby tho #corrie”

A second added: “Awwwwww it makes me sad watching Sinead Daniel and Bertie #Corrie @itvcorrie”

Men’s Brands Breathe New Life Onto Bleecker Street

Bleecker Street has become a magnet for men’s wear.
The once-red hot stretch of the West Village stumbled badly over the past few years as nationally known names such as Marc Jacobs, Brunello Cucinelli and Ralph Lauren exited in the face of escalating rents and declining sales.
In fact, at its lowest point last year, there was a 25 percent vacancy rate for all of Bleecker from the East to West Villages, according to Chelsea Mullen, marketing director of the Skylight Group, which has been working to revitalize the street.
Joel Isaacs, founder and president of Isaacs and Co., a key real estate broker for the area, said a primary reason for the “revival” on Bleecker is that “rents have corrected and have gone from $ 600 a square foot to around $ 200.”
But it’s more than just rent that draws people to Bleecker. He said despite the empty storefronts, the street retains its charm and beauty. Residents of the area are very affluent, he said, and everyone — New Yorkers and visitors alike — like to stroll the street.
Slowly and without a lot of fanfare over the last year, many of those vacant storefronts have found new life as independent men’s brands — many of

How If Beale Street Could Talk Author James Baldwin Went From Literary Critic to Civil-Rights Icon

History changed around James Baldwin, but the glaring contradiction in American life that he so often highlighted still lurks within it. The author’s work argued that white Americans who boast of the United States as a nation of freedom can only do so by glossing over, to some degree, its history of slavery, as well as myriad other injustices experienced by minority groups of all kinds. In his lesser-known 1974 novel If Beale Street Could Talk, which arrives in theaters Friday with a film adaptation from Academy Award-winning director Barry Jenkins, insidious injustices are an inescapable part of everyday life — a truth the personal experience of which shaped Baldwin’s writing, propelling his evolution into a major voice for civil rights.

Born in Harlem in New York City on Aug. 2, 1924, Baldwin had one of his first political awakenings facing racism in the early 1940s at a restaurant in New Jersey, where he got a defense-related track-laying job during World War II. As the story goes, when a waitress told him the restaurant didn’t serve African Americans, he threw a glass at her. He felt “ready to commit murder,” as he later wrote in the 1955 anthology Notes of a Native Son, and thought he had to get out before he either killed someone or got himself killed. After that incident, he moved to Greenwich Village and began working in a restaurant and writing, then moved to Paris in 1948.

“Before he went to Paris, he had started to establish himself as a book reviewer, but he didn’t establish that prophetic voice until later,” says David Leeming, who worked for Baldwin and wrote James Baldwin: A Biography.

He would spend the rest of his life splitting his time between the United States and France. In Paris, he wrote Go Tell It On the Mountain — a semi-autobiographical 1953 novel about his stepfather, a stern preacher — and Giovanni’s Room, a novel that takes place within a circle of Parisian gay life, in 1956. He began to get more recognition among the general population for his critiques of American history, such as his 1955 anthology Notes of a Native Son, in which he wrote: “At the root of the American Negro problem is the necessity of the American white man to find a way of living with the Negro in order to be able to live with himself. And the history of this problem can be reduced to the means used by Americans — lynch law and law, segregation and legal acceptance, terrorization and concession — either to come to terms with this necessity, or to find a way around it, or (most usually) to find a way of doing both these things at once.”

While his career was already developing, there was one incident in that period that he would later single out as a starting point for his identity as a voice on civil rights.

On Sept. 4, 1957, white mobs spit on 15-year-old Dorothy Counts as she entered a newly-integrated school in Charlotte, N.C. Seeing news coverage of what happened to Counts compelled Baldwin to return to the U.S. to as a writer and activist. He repeatedly challenged white Americans to look inward, arguing in his 1961 anthology Nobody Knows My Name that the nation would not allow black people “to starve, to grow bitter, and to die in ghettos” if not driven by a fear that had nothing to do with the people who had to live with its consequences. He became even more famous as a spokesperson for the civil rights movement with a New Yorker essay that became the 1963 book The Fire Next Time, seeming to foreshadow 1960s race riots with its title, which was derived from a line in a spiritual in which God promises Noah that next time humanity will be punished for sin not with flood but with fire. Baldwin reiterated his belief that “the Negro problem” wouldn’t exist if white people truly learned to “love themselves and each other” — and made clear the terrible consequences that could follow if that didn’t happen.

With the publication of this essay, “he was suddenly recognized as an American novelist, not just a Negro novelist,” says Rich Blint, an expert on Baldwin and professor of Literature at the Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School.

The year 1963 was a turning point in the civil rights movement, and by that point Baldwin was at the height of his career and at the center of it all.

He was in the middle of a speaking tour for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) when he appeared on the cover of the May 17, 1963, issue of TIME right after school walkouts turned violent in Birmingham, Ala. Televised images of African-American children getting hosed down and attacked by police dogs, combined with the deadly 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in the fall, are considered to be catalysts for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. “Spring 1963 will long be remembered as the time when the U.S. Negro’s revolution for equality exploded on all fronts,” TIME wrote the next month, following Attorney General Bobby Kennedy’s meeting with a group of African-American literati, which was organized by James Baldwin. “After the spring of 1963, there can be no turning back.”

And yet, that revolution didn’t lead to as much change as Baldwin had hoped for. From the late ’60s until his death on Dec. 1, 1987, at the age of 63, his writing would reflect his increasing frustration and disappointment that the nation had yet to fulfill the promise of full equality for people of all races and sexual orientations.

The assassinations of Medgar Evers in 1963, Malcolm X in 1965, and Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968 “broke him,” says Blint. (In the 1972 anthology No Name in The Street, Baldwin recalls a postal clerk friend asking him if he could have the suit that Baldwin wore to Martin Luther King’s funeral after reading in a gossip column that the author vowed never to wear the suit again. Baldwin personally delivered it to him and stayed for dinner.) He attempted suicide at least four times throughout his life.

“Watching all of these men being snuffed out one by one really, really depressed him,” Blint says. “How much longer do we want to wait for a certain type of progress?”

It was in this later period that he wrote If Beale Street Could Talk, which reflects many of the often invisible, but perhaps even more dangerous, forms of racism that he saw throughout American culture. The novel’s protagonists have trouble finding an apartment because they’re black, and one is hastily locked up for a crime he did not commit — plot points that reflect the period’s concern with housing equality and the beginning of mass incarceration. TIME also saw it as a response to the studies such as the Moynihan Report, which made headline news of the state of vulnerable African-American families. “Possibly Baldwin, who now lives in France, took to long fiction for the first time in six years out of disgust with the slag heaps of sociology about blacks,” the magazine wrote in its original 1974 book review. “Such studies often go on about the instability of the black family; the [family in the novel is] both strong and united.” (The review also argued that the story would be more compelling staged, foreshadowing Jenkins’ film adaption: “As a novel it is not a success, being too sentimental and predictable by half. But it has the makings of a splendid opera.”)

While Baldwin is no longer alive, his writing is — from the 2016 Oscar-nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro to the idea that he can be seen as a Founding Father of the Black Lives Matter movement.

“For people to reach for him in this moment makes all of the sense in the world — a moment of profound crisis, when the nation has to answer the question, Who are we?” says Eddie S. Glaude, a TIME columnist and Professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University, who is writing a book about Baldwin.

And after all he lived through, perhaps that would not surprise Baldwin himself. “Each generation is promised,” he wrote in Notes of a Native Son, “more than it will get: which creates, in each generation, a furious, bewildered rage.”

James Baldwin’s ‘Beale Street’ Is Talking Louder Than Ever

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

If Beale Street Could Talk, a movie directed by Barry Jenkins, opens in limited release December 14. The novel of the same name by James Baldwin and on which the movie is based was published in June 1974. It tells the story of Tish and Fonny, two very young (she’s 19, he’s 22) African-Americans in New York City who are in love, engaged to be married, then find the fragile trajectory of their lives thrown off by Fonny’s arrest for a rape he did not commit. The perpetrator of the arrest—of the entire maddening injustice of Fonny’s incarceration—is one Officer Bell, a blue-eyed, red-haired New York City cop who, for no good reason, has it in for Fonny.

Beale Street is a tragedy, not without hope at the end, but a tragedy nevertheless. “You can beat the rap, but you can’t beat the ride,” is a saying you hear among lawyers of the criminal defense bar, and the ordeal that Tish, Fonny, and their families endure is a very harsh ride indeed.

The same summer that Beale Street was published, I read it far from New York, in a quiet, leafy suburb of what was called in those days “the New South,” and the news that book brought me might as well have come from another planet. I was 16, white, middle class, and had spent exactly one night of my life in New York, at a Holiday Inn. The world Baldwin depicts, a world in which the racist animus of a white policeman could so randomly, lethally be brought to bear on one particular black man, rocked my 16-year-old self back on his heels.

Turkey Renames Street Leading to New U.S. Embassy After Malcolm X

Turkey is paying homage to Malcolm X by renaming the street on which a new U.S. embassy is being built after the late civil rights leader.

Haberturk TV reports that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made an order to rename the street “Malcolm X” avenue. His order was then backed by the Ankara municipal assembly in a unanimous vote, according to state-run media agency Anadolu. The decision, however, will likely be met with criticism and seen as controversial by American diplomats since detractors argue that the American Muslim activist preached a message of violence that stoked racial tension.

This is not the first time that Turkey used the names of streets housing diplomatic missions to make a political statement. According to Bloomberg:

Following a tweet by the United Arab Emirates foreign minister that appeared to criticize an Ottoman Turkish military commander, Fahreddin Pasa, Turkey renamed the UAE embassy’s street after him. And the current U.S. embassy’s street was changed to “Olive Branch Road” in February, a reference to the Turkish military operation in Syria against the Kurdish YPG, a group allied with the U.S. but which Turkey views as a terrorist organization.

 

In response to Donald Trump’s comments when he proposed a Muslim immigration ban in his campaign for the presidency, Erdogan also demanded that the now-President’s name be removed from signs around Trump Towers in Istanbul. His name remains on view, but last month the Istanbul municipal assembly voted to remove it from the metro underpass leading to the Trump complex.

Last month, the Turkish president met with Malcolm X’s daughters in New York during a United Nations assembly meeting, calling Malcolm X a symbol of “the struggle against racism.” Following the meeting, Malcolm X’s daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, said the Turkish leader “represents” the legacy of her father, who was assassinated in 1965. “It was my great honor to meet with such a leader, especially in the name of human dignity, compassion, and social justice,” she said, reports the Daily Sabah.

Dover Street Market Introduces Danish Jeweler Griegst During Frieze

FATHER TO SON: Arje Griegst forged a unique path as a jeweler and sculptor, since founding his eponymous label in the Sixties, and now a whole new generation has the chance to own — and wear — his work.
Two years after his father’s death, Noam Griegst is setting out to honor his legacy and bring pieces from his archive alive. They’re currently on display — and for sale — outside Copenhagen for the first time at Dover Street Market in London. The store is debuting 10 reissued designs by the late jeweler during the Frieze Art Fair, which runs until Sunday.
Griegst’s commitment to craftsmanship was unrivaled: He made his first piece of cutlery at age 10, received a De Beers Prize at 19 and went on to create a world of his own inside his Copenhagen studio, designing sculpted pieces in gold and precious stones and often receiving commissions from the Danish Royal Family.
“A single ring could take two years to make. He would cast it in wax, again and again, until it was perfected, and in the meantime we were all starving at home and my mum would go completely crazy,” Noam said in an interview. “I’ve been working
