Nubian Hueman 1231 Good Hope Road SE Washington D.C. What Draws You In? Tucked inside a gallery space at the Anacostia Arts Center, Nubian Hueman is a welcome addition to a neighborhood with few retail options. The store launched online in 2012 and the gallery space is approaching its 1 year anniversary. Chill music and a signature Nubian Hueman candle scent welcome you at the door, but the most intriguing element is the vibrant color found in the space. What Will You Find? The store offers a variety of items—clothing, accessories, beauty/home goods, and artwork. Owner Anika Hobbs works with a diverse team of designers, including Simply Cecily, to bring unique and quality items to the store. Her goal is to work with brands and artists that give back by donating a portion of their proceeds to not-for-profit organizations, fair-trade, or socio-developmental causes. New merchandise is put on display once or twice per month, and prices hover around $80 on average for clothing. What Keeps You Coming Back? Anika has a background in interior design and retail, and this is evident in the flow and design of the space. In addition to selling her unique finds, she uses the space to host regular events including trunk shows and launch parties for local designers. You may also see Nubian Hueman represented at various festivals and shows around D.C.
