About The Artwork

"I Chose to be BLACK" is an exclusive Afrikanizm collection inspired by the global movement - Black Lives Matter. This collection was born out of the need to acknowledge and celebrate African identity that has been "buried" under the weight of colonialism and centuries of oppression.

The collection is by the talented Rwandan artist, Munyaneza Henry who decided to use his art to express the values, lifestyle and activities that have shaped African culture throughout history. Through his art, the artist aims to inspire and empower others to reclaim their African identity and embrace their heritage with pride.
