We were super excited to work on a collaborative shirt to support the tour. We worked with Anaiah from Zulu and artist Nina Buxenbaum to create something special. Here’s what Nina had to say about her work.
“We view the Baobab tree as a connection to our African ancestors, healing our relationship to nature and agriculture as a path towards healing our ancestral trauma. The flowers are from the African yam plant and the American sweet potato plants. These plants are a staple of African and African American cultural cuisine. Plants are our medicine, and learning to grow food in a sustainable way, meeting the needs of our Mother Earth, will lead us to healing and self-efficacy.“
Make sure to support Zulu on tour in your town soon and if you missed the recent shows, we have a few shirts for sale on our site while supplies last. A portion of the sales will be donated to the Black led organizations of @blackpowerviolence choice.
