Simone Smith is celebrating Black love and she’s rallied some of her famous sistas to join in.
Smith has teamed up with Color of Change for the “Black Love” jewelry collection.
The pieces center around a Black fist motif, in a campaign inspired by velvet paintings that decorated the walls of Smith’s childhood home.
“The fist symbolizes freedom, unity, and self-love,” Smith who is married to LL Cool J told Oprah Daily. “The Black Love collection is so important to me because it represents the beauty of Black culture and our powerful future. It represents being proud of who you are. My sisters in the campaign all represent Black love to me. They are truly unique, joyous, vibrant bosses who embody the beauty of being Black and loving the skin they’re in.”
10 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Color Of Change, a non-profit civil rights organization.
“Color Of Change demands justice for Black communities, which includes protecting Black people’s businesses, art, love and joy. This is why I named the collection Black Love, she shared.
