The design for Justice, the fifth jewel in this 12-part KC Wonder collection, would have to be a favourite design. The design and imagery is powerful and striking at first glance and it also has a compelling meaning behind it. When you delve deeper into the visual and the message, you start to understand and develop your own thoughts and opinions.
You better get your riot gear ready for this one! WE THE PEOPLE…WE DON’T BELIEVE YOU!
This collection’s design depicts a group of young black men, dressed in riot gear, united and ready to fight the authorities. These young men are seeking Justice,Equality, true Freedom and, maybe, some Acceptance. It is the story of the Newark race riots, it is the story of Ahmaud Arbery and hundreds of thousands of other stories that make this message of Justice still so important today. It is this allegory that is meant to impassion and provoke you.
In We The People, off A Tribe Called Quest’s sixth and final studio album We Got it from Here…Thank You 4 Your Service, Phife Dawg (RIP) rapped:
“You bastards overlooking street art
Better yet, street smarts but you keep us off the charts
So motherfuck your numbers and your statisticians
Fuck y'all know about true competition?
That's like a AL pitcher on deck talking about he hittin'
The only one who's hitting are the ones that's currently spittin'
We got your missy smitten rubbing on her little kitten
Dreaming of a world that's equal for women with no division
Boy, I tell you that's vision”
These lyrics served as inspiration behind the Jewel 5 Justice collection. The track, described by Pitchfork as a “a ferocious and driving song about intolerance and fear”, was a fitting muse for the intensity and significance of Justice. This spirit is why we love this jewel’s design so much!
Support the movement. Watch the influential We The People music video and check out the KC Wonder Jewel 5 Justice collection for the full understanding and experience.
This collection was made for you with love from the KC Wonder family. We want to see Justice for black folks, Mexican, the poor folks, Muslim and gays all over the world. We want to see Justice for all.
