It is clear that there is a missing narrative in America. That narrative is the one of the black american. “What does it mean to be a black american?” is a question often asked by founder of Social Justice Brand and Media Company GLOSSRAGS.
Randi Gloss, who is only 25 years old, has taken something as simple as a t-shirt to promote social justice and is using it to educate America. GLOSSRAGS started less than two years ago with a black t-shirt, white lettering, and 6 names of those who had been slain due to racial injustice. The names listed were Emmett Till, Amadou Diallo,Sean Bell,Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis.
These “And Counting” tees were a harsh yet polished reminder that black americans face death in many forms but police brutality is one of the highest causes of black deaths.
We got a chance to sit down with Randi Gloss a few weeks ago and get the back-story of how GLOSSRAGS got started. Learn more about Randi Gloss and her goals for GLOSSRAGS in our exclusive interview on the next page.
