We want to inspire other third culture kids to acknowledge their roots. We want to give the western world a broader perspective on African culture through storytelling and design. — Daily Paper founders Jefferson Osei, Abderrahmane Trabsini, and Hussein Suleiman*

The exhibition VOICES OF FASHION—BLACK COUTURE, BEAUTY AND STYLES is now on view at the Centraal Museum, “the first ever staged by an art museum in the Netherlands to query the white gaze as the default vantage point from which to present, wear and collect fashion.”**
