On Equality


Cemeli is a fashion company with a social mission that stands firmly on its values of supporting not only women creators and small businesses but also promoting diversity and equality in all forms and dimensions. So much has been said already on RACISM so from our side we just say:

Let's all come together, educate ourselves and our communities and then fight together, united, to bring radical change and to eradicate racial discrimination and violence.
For you. For your children. For your community. For future generations.

As a company with a heightened sense of social purpose, we pledge to stay alert and keep advocating for a world that will stop once and for all being entrenched in violence, inequality, discrimination.

Maya Angelou in protests (1960s)
 Equality | Poem by Maya Angelou

You declare you see me dimly
through a glass which will not shine,
though I stand before you boldly,
trim in rank and marking time.
You do own to hear me faintly
as a whisper out of range,
while my drums beat out the message
and the rhythms never change.

Equality, and I will be free.
Equality, and I will be free.

You announce my ways are wanton,
that I fly from man to man,
but if I'm just a shadow to you,
could you ever understand ?

We have lived a painful history,
we know the shameful past,
but I keep on marching forward,
and you keep on coming last.

Equality, and I will be free.
Equality, and I will be free.

Take the blinders from your vision,
take the padding from your ears,
and confess you've heard me crying,
and admit you've seen my tears.

Hear the tempo so compelling,
hear the blood throb in my veins.
Yes, my drums are beating nightly,
and the rhythms never change.

Equality, and I will be free.
Equality, and I will be free.
