The tragic murder of George Floyd, Summer 2020, caused global recognition of the importance of the Black Lives Matter Movement (BLM). Founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, BLM’s purpose is “By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.”
Black individuals have provided unrecognized and undocumented imagination and innovation within the apparel, fashion and textile industries which are vast, profound and multifaceted. Sanders, Benson and Caleb’s December 3 discussion points to those contributions featured in their own doctoral work through an array of scholarly methods.
