In my day, every kid wanted to be a Power Ranger for Halloween, wanted to have the latest kicks– at that time they were still advertised on television, and for the girls, we wanted to have some type of Disney princess on our backpack, lunch box, clothing. But when I was growing up, there were no Disney princesses that looked like me. And even now that there is one, Princess Tiana, Disney has decided to roll back some of the merchandise featuring her face.
But we gon’ be alright. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait on other people to represent us. There are companies like Brown Kid Swag that are creating the images that our children need to see.
Check out some of their merchandise on the following pages.
