February 24, 2016 -- Philadelphia, PA.
Nina Grier, Founder of Historical Dream, LLC – a purveyor of jewelry, clothing and home accessories depicting images of African, Spanish, Asian and Native American historical figures – will be one of the honorees at the Joan Shepp 16th Annual Women of Style and Substance Black History Month Celebration today.

Historical Dream was established in 2015 and has distinguished itself by showcasing the likeness of important but little known heroes whose contributions helped shape American history. Famous characters including Frederick Douglass, Harriett Tubman as well as lesser known figures such as Wong Chin Foo (who advocated for the rights of Chinese during the 19th century) and others are featured on “wearable art” such as designer shirts, jewelry and household items as both a tribute and fashion statement to elevate the social and consumer awareness of these ethnic leaders.
A former healthcare executive and Philadelphia native, Ms. Grier has also established a crowdfunding campaign to support market demands for Historical Dream products.
