Who we are
Purposeful Protégés is a lifestyle brand that edifies the history of African descendants through cultural apparel, accessories & home décor that features Ekphrastic poetic style.
Being a Purposeful Protégé means to make a statement about who you are and where your roots are. The messages of our brand encourage, educate, and uplift people who don’t usually receive daily positive affirmations of their cultural heritage.
“An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning.”
