Served Fresh Turns Simone Manuel Into Little Mermaid
“Out where they walk, out where they run, out where they play all day in the sun!” Most little girls always dream of being a Disney princess. Simone Manuel is now definitely living the dream! In a super cute artwork by clothing brand Served First Manuel is seen chilling “Under the Sea” with Flounder.
In the pic Simone also rocks a crown and a gold medal! Very fitting due to her historic win. Served First recognizes just how huge Manuel’s achievement is and spoke on how they were inspired by it. They said,
“We designed our First Children’s piece aimed at encouraging young women of color that they too can achieve greatness in the face of adversity. The significance of her victory resonates profoundly with us as swimming pools have been a racially sensitive flashpoint in the U.S. for generations.
Historically, African-Americans were often denied access to swimming pools during the segregation era and long thereafter. In fact, we remember quite vividly how an entire pool was drained after actress, Dorothy Dandridge dipped her toe in.
With artwork inspired by the Little Mermaid, our nieces, sisters, cousins and daughters can now showcase their pride and affection for Simone.”
