After the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis PD a worldwide backlash against police brutality and systemic racism ensued. Apart from standing up to racism whenever I encounter it I also wanted to do my part in another way.
As a historian and archivist I truly believe in the power of having a (shared) history. Unfortunately, history has been kept and written mostly by… people just like me: male and white. This means that only now are we seeing different perspectives be included in history. Perspectives that were always there already, but never talked about.
I want to help black voices and black history (and that of other minorities as well) become more a part of our/my shared culture. I want to make sure these voices are recorded and kept.
Therefore, all proceeds of the sale of this shirt will be donated to The Black Archives, an Amsterdam-based organisation focused on saving, maintaining and collecting this part of history.
