Retro, not Racial, Revival

Hi readers,

We just wanted to take a moment to reach out to everyone in the wake of some of the most turbulent political and social crises of our lives. It has been a wild experience between the Covid-19 pandemic, the protesting of the death of George Floyd, and the ongoing political climate of fear and hate mongering. Regardless of anyone’s beliefs, we feel that it is important to publicize that we- as writers, professionals, and hopefully decent and moral human beings- write about themes of the middle of the 20th century (1950-60s mostly) to bring back an aesthetic, a nostalgic feeling. We DO NOT and WILL NOT tolerate the same or even similar racial disparaties, discriminatory patterns, or prejudices that reflect those eras bygone. It’s all too easy to get wrapped up in the title’ retro revival’ and presume we advocate for ‘all’ things retro. We try to be selective and pick only the themes that are positive, community-supporting, and all-inclsive. This is particularly true because we acknowledge and validate that the pleasant, nostalgic feeling of the retro times was not experienced across diverse populations.

The Retro Revival Blog would like to take a moment to say we stand in solidarity with those seeking justice peacefully and in unity- for a sense of morality and true equality- to bring us closer to a life we all can be safe in, comfortable with, and proud of. Every life is worth living.

For over 4 amazing years, it has been an experience, a pleasure, and a journey to be a revivalist. I love all things retro and antique. Writing has been a passion of mine since middle school and throughout my professional career. For all those who are inspired to be vintage, challenge the norms in the name of tradition! We write for a better, more inspired tomorrow <3
