STATE Bags extends its support to communities affected by a man-made water crisis through black women comics. The larger social initiative is called #FlintsFantasticFive and for the #WhatDoWeTellTheKids installment, the company taps Brazil-based illustrator Butcher Billy. Through five conceptual comic book covers, the creative and the brand seeks to recognize the incredible efforts of five real women who have distinguished themselves "as social visionaries, activist teachers, anti-bullying activists and defenders of democracy."
The project effortlessly binds the community together through highly inspirational imagery with these black women comics. The covers speak to the "resiliency, pride and love," as well as the immense strength of residents in Flint, Michigan.
The #FlintsFantasticFive initiative was started to raise awareness and support after a devastating crisis that mobilized minority communities in Flint, Michigan.
