BLACKMAN is unlike any other super hero before. BLACKMAN is the creation of a Black man. A man who recognizes the need for the minority youth throughout the world regardless of race or spoken language. Here to exist as a vehicle to confront issues around police brutality, and institutionalized racism through creative and purposeful design. Not afraid to speak eloquently about things of high order..but here to that divinity, of the highest ideals.

In Loving memory of Kenny Smith the name BAIF represents two sides of the brand. The first being a metaphor for the underdog rising above the oppressor, while the second focuses on the theme of flight and the technical uniforms associated with it.
