I Am "Black Gold" Hat (White)


Inspired by Actor, Activist, & Entrepreneur Jesse Williams’ acceptance speech from the 2016 BET Awards where he was awarded the Humanitarian Award, this hat serves as a perfect reminder that you are “Black Gold.”


Acceptance Award “Black Gold” Quote in Full:

“ We’ve been floating this country on credit for centuries, and we’re done watching and waiting while this invention called whiteness uses and abuses us, burying black people out of sight and out of mind while extracting our culture, our dollars, our entertainment like oil -- black gold! -- ghettoizing and demeaning our creations and stealing them, gentrifying our genius and then trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit. -” Jesse Williams, Actor, Activist, Entrepreneur
