In celebration of the 25th anniversary of their inception, African American College Alliance Clothing is re-launching their brand.
The African American College Alliance (AACA Clothing) is a brand lauded for its self-starting youth movement, developed in 1991. AACA Clothing was initially launched during a time when hip-hop was defined by its cultural impact. With the help of legendary hip hop artists such as Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., N.W.A., Snoop Dogg, LL Cool J. Their famous hoodies are branded with the logos of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, including Howard University, North Carolina A&T, Grambling State and Malcolm X College. The brand advertises itself as a way to provide awareness for these prestigious institutions. Besides representing Historically Black Colleges and Universities on their gear, AACA Clothing will also give 7 to 13% royalty back to the Historical Black Colleges and Universities that adorn their product.
African American College Alliance Clothing is re-launching the brand through a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign, which is available now for pledges from supporters will offer ultra-contemporary gear including the classic AACA hoodies, hats, and AACA sweat suits. The sweat suits will be available for the first time in 20 years. The brand plans to take the profits from this campaign and acquire Historical Black College licenses, manufacture new product and to prepare the brand for this falls back to school season. Through this Kickstarter, AACA Clothing hopes to hit the $100,000 mark. The pledge to support the campaign can range from $10 to $10,000 and will conclude on April 18, 2016.
