About Our Products

Our products represent the views of African Americans, Filmmakers & Hollywood producers. They portray myriad perspectives that few, in modern times, fully comprehend.

With the founding of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture,  the African American experience will be celebrated in all its richness and complexity in a place of honor on the National Mall. The Museum will focus on the contributions made by African Americans in many fields of endeavor, including science, education, the arts, music, government, social policy, and more. In addition, sports and athletics have long been an important part of the African American story and will be featured in the Museum.
