1687 was founded by a diverse team with a passion for social good. 1687 leverages technology and community to create projects that empower people to participate and thrive. The 1687 team collaborates with under-represented groups to help them produce and support initiatives that advance diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (D&IA), then leverages deep ties to the entertainment, sports, and technology industries to help them succeed.
1687 currently has several collaboration projects in various stages of production, including The Withers Art Project and Impact of Images, collaborations with civil rights organizations The Withers Collection, The Emmett Till Legacy Foundation, The Medgar and Myrlie Evers Institute, and Till Movie by Orion Pictures and United Artists.

Big cats were selected as the symbol for the 1687 NFT because they represent diversity, strength, courage, and justice. Big cats are the leaders of their domain, yet they exist in harmony and balance within their environments. Big cats exude courage and lack fear as they make their way in the world, protecting their communities and roaring into action when needed. The term “lionize” is commonly used to glorify or immortalize an individual who had a huge impact on their community or industry, so big cats felt like the perfect symbol to represent our club members.
Change will not come from those meekly standing on the sidelines of society. It comes from those willing to have the heart of a lion, to stand tall with courage in the face of oppression, to roar, fight, and claw against societal norms that elevate the few at the expense of the many. To get into the fight, you must embody the spirit of the cat.
