Hello Meltingpot Readers,
Today I am officially announcing the launch of my latest project. It's not a new book or a new blog, it is a clothing and accessories line called ?RU. Yes, I'm going the way of J-Lo and Beyonce and dipping my toes into the fashion industry. But make no mistake, my plan is not to ditch my writing career and try out for Project Runway. I just decided to enter into the clothing arena to further my mission to make the world a more multicultural, meltingpot, Obamalicious kind of place.
I am starting small, debuting tee-shirts and buttons only (socks are coming soon)at my online store www.whatrugear.com. I really wanted to create a line of hip and funky products that would put to rest that annoying question, "What are You?" hurled at ever man, woman and child who doesn't fit nicely into a single identity box. My very talented partner, art director Tesia Barone, has turned my idea into a very stylish reality.
If you have a free moment, take a peek at the site, leave us a message and by all means tell your friends about ?RU. The revolution can start with a tee-shirt!
