“Fuck everybody who thinks I should suppress my identity. Fuck fear. It’s time for the world to look at another one not as black race or a white race but as a human race.” – Mari Malek
Bold & beautiful words taken from this StyleLikeU feature called ‘What’s Underneath‘ where individuals explore issues of self whilst undressing to reflect personal style and identity.
In this highlighted episode is Activist, DJ and Model, Mari Malek aka DJ Stiletto, who talks us through her journey from war torn Sudan, Africa to living in the projects of New Jersey in the US, facing adversity for her dark skinned complexion.
Mari is just one of a handful of extraordinary individuals to be featured in this original StyleLikeU youtube series from mother-daughter duo Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum. Watch below:
