Kondwani is a spoken word poet born and raised in east Baltimore. His viral essays and video's have called attention to national media for being a voice for his city and tackling the issues that systemically oppress African Americans. Proceeds from his apparel will go directly back to further fuel his work. He's currently finalizing his 3rd book called "Hummingbirds in the Trenches."



Kenneth is born and raised in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago's South Side. While outsiders look at his community with certain bias for the violence we see in the media, he wanted to showcase his community for the love and spirit he knew it for. And so the "I am Englewood" art collection was born. Each t-shirt represents a unique photo taken by Kenneth. The proceeds of each merch sale will go towards fueling his critically acclaimed work in profiling the community he loves the most, Englewood.
