Last year on April, 28th 2014, C.E.O. Robyn Willard debuted the 1st ever #Instagram art exhibit. Robyn and her Artist S. Whittaker wanted to showcase women who have paved the way in the past and present in a positive light. Some of the women who were painted are, Phylicia Rashad, Mary J. Blige, Frida Kahlo, The singing group TLC, Nina Simone and more. Both young ladies collaborated heavily on this art exhibit. Artist S. Whittaker painted each piece which was strategically picked by the two young women. Robyn contributed audio and content for each piece. This art exhibit created an unexpected buzz, gaining over 30,000 followers on Instagram for Robyn’s artist S. Whittaker (@SWhittakerREC).
Artist S. Whittaker painted over 30 pieces. Each piece is available on apparel designed by Robyn + Steph. Hand painted apparel or chucks are also available. Customers are able to order custom hand painted apparel. As you can see in the picture above, 1 of our supporters is rocking a #TBOZ Tee.
“The Dopeness” and we keep going!

Raven Symone… What the Hell?!? (As Whoopi would say)
Raven Symone has diarrhea of the mouth again and this time it’s obvious that she has some real self hate issues. On one of last weeks episodes of the View, Raven stated she would never hire any one with the name “Watermelondrea” endorsing the racial bias that black people still deal with in today’s workforce. Though the backlash that Raven received from her remarks were warranted, there appears to be a deeper physiological problem that she needs to address within herself. Could the reason for Raven’s disdain against her own people stem from how she feels about herself? How can we expect someone to use their global platform to enlighten and promote the beauty of their culture if they are ashamed of it? Does the black community fuel Raven’s hatred by stating derogatory comments on her physical appearance and sexual preference? Or lastly, is Raven just a poor little misguided pawn in the world of propaganda? Who knows? (Well maybe we do know) but in closing, rather than condemn Raven for her senseless remarks, let’s teach the foolish so the stupid won’t spread. #SaveRaven
