Return To The Racks: Clothing Brand AACA To Return After 25 Years
During the 1990s, The African American College Alliance clothing company (AACA for short) was a fashion staple for urban youth aiming to provide a positive life direction for inner-city youngins. It was defined by the cultural impact of HBCU’s like Howard University, North Carolina A&T, Grambling State and Malcolm X College.
