This African Medallion Leather Necklace is made entirely of 100% genuine leather.
The shape of Africa is beautifully carved with detail and painted by hand with acrylic leather colors.
The leather is finished with a coating of glossy sheen to prevent the colors from peeling and from getting dirty.
Size of Medallion:- 2.5 inches in diameter
Necklace:- The medallion is laced with leather rope, long enough for the medallion to hang around the chest.
-Do not emerge the leather in water
-The leather can be cleaned with a lightly damp cloth
-Do not put around children as it can be a choking hazard.
The African Leather Medallion Necklace was introduced in the late 80s and early 90s, a time in which artists like Afrika Bambaata of the Universal Zulu Nation, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and Brand Nubians, were building a movement out of the creativity of a new generation of outcast youths with an authentic, liberating worldview. Hip hop around this time was educational, empowering, and fun with a focus of knowledge of self.
Knowledge of self meant understanding that all black people originated from Africa and as such, we were to embrace our culture and history with pride and dignity. A symbol of such pride was with the use of the African Medallion Leather Necklace. The necklace was made of leather, with the shape of Africa carved out of it and typically painted red, yellow, green and black. The African Medallion Leather Necklace replaced fat diamond chains and gold rope chains as a statement to dismiss the glorification of meaningless materialism in hip hop. The necklace had a great impact and reached not only hip hop groups, but also inmates who wanted to turn their life around, religious groups like the Nation of Islam and everyday individuals.
Unfortunately, this movement did not last as major record labels found it more profitable to capitalize on selling meaningless fantasies of drugs, sex, and money in hip hop.
Today, however many are still woke and although some still believe in meaningless fantasies, the majority do not. This is why I would like to re-introduce the African Medallion Leather Necklace as a constant reminder of where we come from and a celebration of African pride, culture, education and empowerment!
