SHIPPING BEGINS 7/3
On June 19, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger and Union soldiers rode into Galveston, TX and saw the last remaining slaves working. He made an announcement that President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 and they had been free for over two and half years. Juneteenth celebrates freedom for those that were once enslaved in the United States. Our purpose behind this shirt is not only to acknowledge and bring awareness to the 155 years of patience and resilience in the Black community, but also to seek and learn about the untold and untaught histories in our country that very well exist today.
We, as Asian Americans, felt compelled to create this shirt because we are aware of the road that has been paved for us by the Black Americans who have tirelessly fought for the rights and freedoms of minorities. We would not be here without them and we stand with them. Black Lives Matter.
