WHAT’S IN A NAME: BRICKSTER’S 600
Brickster’s was formulated from the word BRICK. The primary function of bricks is to build strong foundations. When stacked, they build walls that reach insurmountable heights evolving into magnificent architectural designs. They elevate, protect and withstand the test of time. Their strength, foundation and fortitude, brings to mind what our ancestors provided for us. Without their shoulders to stand on, ingenuity and determination, we would not be where we are today. We could not have reached insurmountable heights or propelled ourselves to greatness. Their sacrifices have allowed us to evolve into magnificent individuals. At Brickster’s we pay homage to African Americans who have made sacrifices for the present generation and generations to come.
“That is what’s in the name”
