Ru’Quan Brown is an IMPRESSIVE young man. He’s a high school senior who killed the SAT, and made a 3.9 GPA. He’s student body president at his school, and a champion varsity track and field runner - AND football player.
It’s a no-brainer that colleges would be fighting over who gets to welcome this remarkable teen to their campus - but what ended up actually happening is INCREDIBLE.
While the national conversation around gun violence tends to exclude Black youth, Brown founded Love1, a clothing company, in 2019 to raise awareness - and money - to combat gun violence.
“You never know how your 1 act of Love might literally save someone’s life,” goes the brand’s tagline, which donates 20% of all profits to an anti-gun violence organization.
We celebrate this #BlackExcellence! When you follow your passion, turn your tragedy into positivity, and give back to your community, people will notice. Ru’Quan Brown, you’re an inspiration to us all!
