Our Story

Who We Are.

Reparations Media and Apparel (RM&A) is a political art and streetwear brand that puts RACE in your face. We tackle contemporary issues of racial injustice and economic inequality—all with deliberate humor and speed. We’re driven by queer theory, leftist politics, and a radically refreshing hope for the future.

What We Believe.

At Reparations Media and Apparel, we believe a better world is possible, despite the racist status quo. We want reparations for the War on Drugs and a Green New Deal in Flint. We want a universally free healthcare system and tuition-free college for all. We want national rent control. Legal weed from unionized labor. And we most certainly want to eat the rich.

Why We Do It.

RM&A is a black-led, minority-owned apparel shop headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We reinvest our profits into higher wages for our workers, better quality products for our customers, and nonprofit political education for our fans and followers. With continued growth and success, we hope to inspire the next generation of antiracist activists, advocates, and community organizers.
