Gbenga Akinnagbe, Founder & Managing Director of Liberated People
Get Informed. Get Involved. Get Off Your Ass.
A global movement for social change and fairness
Liberated People is a lifestyle brand designed to inspire people to act. Founded in 2012 by actor and activist Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire, 24, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 and The Savages) LP highlights the liberation dates of nation states around the world. Dates of Liberation unite us as global citizens through our common struggle for liberation in all its forms, both personal and political. By intersecting art, culture and politics LP helps to create change in the world. Starting with one t-shirt on the backs of many, we aim to spread a movement fueled by humanity...one t-shirt at a time.
Engaged people are free people. Communities around the world, helping to build with each other, are the inspiration behind Liberated People. Liberated People is committed to partnering with various non-profit organizations working to improve the quality of life of their participants.
We use eco-friendly printing by employing primarily water-based inks. LP also makes use of recycled materials, such as plastic bottles, in creating many of its garments.
Our shirts are all prewashed and preshrunk and are made of jersey knit cotton to ensure they remain as close to how you bought it as possible. Liberated People is made in America and uses a socially responsible profit structure. We know our factories. Our garments are produced in Atlanta, Georgia and Los Angeles, California.
Liberated People has the goal of mobilizing the demobilized populace in an effort to further the cause of global citizenry. Through information and broadening the scope of dialogue we aim to empower the masses with the knowledge that our struggles unite us more than our differences. Together we have the numbers and strength to create a fairer and more just global society. Speak truth to power.
