Lift Every Voice & Sing is known as the Black National Anthem. James Weldon Johnson and John Rosamond Johnson, two brothers from Jacksonville, Florida, cowrote the famous song. They both believed artistic and cultural excellence were critical for Black advancement in America. They would be proud to see their hymn live on through Black culture fashion this Black History Month.

Nah, I'm Gonna Sit in the Front Today 

We all know Rosa Parks for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on an Alabama bus in 1955. Being a Black woman in those days was no joke. And still, Mrs. Parks dared to say NO (Nah), a bold move that ignited the civil rights movement. This Black statement shirt honors her bravery. 

Rosa Parks

While Rosa Parks is infamous for her one-woman bus protest that launched the civil rights movement, many people don’t know of her other accomplishments. She was an active NAACP member. She also worked for Congressman John Conyers to find housing for the homeless. Support Black-owned t-shirt businesses and honor this civil rights hero by rocking your Rosa Parks gear for Black History Month and any other day of the year.
One Month Can't Hold Our History


This Black statement shirt is the perfect reminder that celebrating Black History once a year during the shortest month is not sufficient.
 Black history is American history.  African-Americans have been a cornerstone of the United States of America since its inception. Remind everyone that our contributions and achievements could never be relegated to 28 days.

I'll Take My Reparations in Cash


Japanese internment. Native American land seizures. America owes a lot of apologies. Some of these groups have seen attempts at reparations. Although the U.S. formally apologized for slavery and segregation in 2009, African-Americans are still waiting for the United States to put our money where its mouth is. We’ll take our reparations in cash, please!

Shirley Chisholm

Shirley Chisolm was the first African-American woman in Congress. She was also the first woman and African-American to seek the presidential nomination from one of the two major political parties in 1972. This Black statement shirt reminds the world of this dedicated advocate’s works. 

Martin Luther King. Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. is probably the most famous and revered civil rights activist. Many forget that he wasn’t as well-liked during his time. Like much of American history, his work is continuously recognized. This Black History Month, let’s honor the real Martin Luther King Jr.
