The Urban Poetik Ministries (UPM) is a non profit organization whose mission is to bring urban poetic works that include the mediums of music and dance to the theatrical stage in service to our performers and our audiences. We stimulate, celebrate, and enhance understanding of others and our selves through shared experiences of live theatre and arts programs in Philadelphia and other cities worldwide.
Your purchase of one of our products helps to support our efforts to eradicate 'colorism' in communities of color across the globe. We are shifting the paradigm of what it means to be "dark" skinned. Dark skinned means Sun kissed beauty, melanin poppin' beauty, dark and lovely beauty, chocolate beauty. Strong, powerful, rocking black girl magic defines us. We go deep, we go proud, we will not be left behind. Join the movement. The I AM THE COLOUR OF BEAUTIFUL™ Spoken Word Initiative is a global action focusing on deliverance from the stigma of colorism in communities of color across the globe. Our T-shirt, Sweatshirt and Mug voice collectively voice what we know to be true - I AM THE COLOUR OF BEAUTIFUL!
