Our mission at OUAI has always been about community, and creating a place for ALL people to feel seen, heard, and celebrated. This month, we celebrate Black History month and all the accomplishments of Black Americans throughout our history.
Our work to foster inclusivity as a team and a brand is not done—we are just getting started. This month we want to share some of the artists, creators, and activists that have inspired us or taught us something along the OUAI. Get to know them below.
