Progression With The Krown was started in 2015 by Oluwaseyi Adeleke. The brand is heavily inspired by the current climate of injustice against people of color. Progression With The Krown seeks to combat that with powerful t-shirts that will educate the wearer and those around them. Each shirt is meant to be conversation starter and learning experience for those willing to listen. Most importantly, each shirt is meant to allow the wearer to stand in solidarity with oppressed groups as strides toward justice are made.
