Mic | This Viral Fashion Moment Reveals What It's Like To Be a Black Designer Today

"The whole thing came about with me telling Usher['s team] no," fashion designer Kerby Jean-Raymond told Mic in a phone interview. "But you can't really tell him no — he's really persistent, and he gets everyone to call you until you give in."
So on Independence Day, Usher took the stage at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, in front of thousands of people, wearing a t-shirt that crossed out the words "July Fourth" and instead read "Juneteenth," a holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.
