We're a two-man operation currently based in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Andrè Singleton  is a renaissance man with a background in performing art and higher education.  Justin Fulton is a digital designer / art director working in the fashion industry. We first connected in 2006, studying at opposite ends of the New School all the while navigating the complexity of NYC in our early 20s. Very Black is truly our passion project; an organic extension of our everyday kitchen talks.  We're beyond grateful to be able to share with you our creativity in ways that affirm and celebrate Blackness in all of it's robust beauty, cultures and hues.
