BAD BRAINS + PURE HELL / BLACK PUNKS HOODIE

$50.00

Enter Pure Hell, a punk band from Philadelphia , but not just any band, many hail them as the first black punk band to reach prominence, before even Bad Brains who ended up being held up as “the” black punk band, and some would say its one of those “Pure Hell walked so Bad Brains could fly” kind of situations. Bad Brains ended up as the name more people remembered, but I see that as emblematic of the age old crisis in art and culture, that only one “token” black entity is allowed not only success, but to simply even be able to exist in a given space at a time. A mindset that black people are no stranger too even from inside the black community itself, but there is room for all of us, we are not in competition with one another, we are each others keeper, our wins are shared. “Abundance mindset”
