Malcolm X Hoodie designed by Menes Kedar with art by Kruma Kedar. Malcolm X on the front with Nkyinkyim Adinkra symbol on the back overlayed with the Kruma Kedar “See What I’m Sayin” logo.
The Nkyinkyim Adinkra symbol represents the concept of “initiative” or “self-motivation” in the Akan language of Ghana. The symbol is made up of two figures, one standing and the other sitting, with the standing figure appearing to be helping the sitting figure to stand up. This representation is meant to convey the idea that one must take the initiative to stand up and take action to improve their own life and circumstances. It can also be interpreted as the importance of helping others to rise and achieve their goals. The Nkyinkyim symbol is often used to encourage people to take action towards their goals and aspirations.
