Talk begins at 9:00AM

From the speaker:
“I used to believe risks had to be something very big. I remember in my 20’s moving to Milan from London with only 60£ in my purse. My then Roomate took me to the airport to send me off and we both sat there and cried when my bags were too large and I had to pay 30£ for my oversize luggage. I moved to Milan for an interview for an internship but I knew it was worth the risk and whatever I needed to find wasn’t in the job but in this country where I needed to be. A lot of times we don’t listen to that voice of assurance that always knows what is right for us. As children we didn’t ask questions, we just explored, but as adults we carry these barriers and questions when we are told to go and do something. It’s in the whispers and night visions that we hear our truth…."

Randal was born in the Jim Crow South, studied business at Morehouse College, and graduated from American Intercontinental University in London. Jacobs lived in Milan, and worked as a journalist for FashionWindows.com where he reviewed runway shows in Paris, New York City and London. Randal also spent 8 years in New York City working in advertising and the styling department for Ralph Lauren. He also worked at GQ magazine as assistant to the creative director. Currently residing in Detroit, Jacobs is a board member of the Michigan Garment Industry Council and owner of Savvy Gents Haberdashery. He is currently collaborating with performance artists creating projects that involve contemporary dance, burlesque and kabuki Theatre. His life’s work consists of being a historical storyteller of glamour, fashion, style and art through the lens and voice of Melanin Efficient cultures around the World.
