To mark Black History Month, premier New York boutique and lifestyle label Alife has teamed up with the Brooklyn Museum on a series of projects to highlight different artists. The first creative under the spotlight is African-American painter, writer, and performance artist Faith Ringgold.

The Harlem-born artist is renowned for her political posters, which pushed the issues of race and violence in front of a wider audience. Her acclaimed American People Series was shown recently at the "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power" exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum.

For this special collab, Ringgold’s 1972 poster The United States of Attica has been put on a shirt and sweatshirt. "Ringgold created the piece in response to the prisoner’s rebellion at Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York in 1971, where prisoners who were non-violently protesting prison conditions at the time were met with violence from the police force, leading to national news coverage," explained Alife in its announcement of the collab.

The capsule will be available at the Brooklyn Museum this month. For more details, head over to Alife's website.
