Negritude is an ideological philosophy developed by Aime Cesaire and other French-speaking Caribbean philosophers in 1930’s France, emphasizing the depth and historical significance of black culture. Cesaire believed that by recognizing and celebrating the value of a distinctly black cultural tradition, one achieves mental decolonization which, in turn, enables one to realize change in the world.

This fall KHIRY will launch Négritude, a digital magazine offering culture and critical perspectives at the vanguard of black art and culture worldwide. Featuring interviews, essays, and editorials with the black artists, and intellectuals, Negritude will act as a living record of KHIRY’s diverse inspiration, merging the worlds of fashion, art, and politics.
