Asantewaa: Ghana- warrior, fighter, brave, an bold
Asantewaa reflects the warrior spirit of ancestor Yaa Asantewaa, warrior princess from Ghana, West Africa but brings that spirit to the modern world. As a college educated, sorority educated, African conscious sista, Asantewaa recognizes her duty to be there for her people. No stranger to high fashion, Asantwaa's oversized Ankara caftan compliments her oversized high peaked hair. She wears half moon earrings which are a cross cultural representation of femininity. Her long beaded spiked necklace covers the neck as a transformation between High Fashion and High Cultural Consciousness.
Do not mistake her beauty as weakness. Asantewaa inspires generations in a High Fashion Couture runway style of unexpected Protest Signs across Gowns. Asantewaa's message begins with the traditional battle cry of "We Shall Overcome" but reminds us that "Silence is Not an Option" because if there is "No Justice..." there will be "No Peace". "Black Lives..." do "Matter" and we will "Say Their Names" of those people of African descent who have lost their lives unjustly by the hands of unjust people and laws.
