Jaden Smith Covers Variety & Releases Martin Luther King-Inspired Clothing Line
Jaden Smith is gracing the latest issue of Variety.
The 18-year-old rapper and actor told “Entertainment Tonight” his line is inspired by Civil Rights icon, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
I just dropped a collection today and, you know, every inspiration for every collection is something different every time, but right now the inspiration I use is Martin Luther King.
He wrote a letter when he was in Birmingham in a jail cell, and he wrote this letter, and he said a lot of powerful, powerful, powerful things in his rhetoric inside of this masterpiece that he wrote, which is just so beautiful.
But the thing I took away is non-violent, direct action programs…and I just feel like that was written so long ago, but it applies so much to what’s happening right now in the world. So that’s why I want to give it to the kids. I want the kids to…you know, rep[resent] that non-violent, direct action program of doing exactly what you see that you need to do, and changing the world.
That’s what MSFTSrep is all about — empowering the youth.
