New Heights with Black joy.
This Black History Month, The North Face celebrates the story of Black exploration with Sophia Danenberg and Phil Henderson, two profound mountaineers that continue to elevate the voices and actions of future Black climbers.
As we continue to deconstruct the walls of racism to increase access for the Black community, we look to Sophia and Phil to remind those looking to climb new heights to connect to Black phenoms of the past, present, and future.
The project is an open and honest look at what it means to acknowledge adversity and seek solutions in a world where Black people often lack support and representation on and off the mountain. Sophia and Phil inspire Black joy through a collection that celebrates their historic achievements.
