The Incredable History!

The year 1619 holds immense significance in understanding the African American experience in the United States. While not the absolute beginning of African presence, it marked a critical turning point. In August of that year, a ship arrived in Virginia carrying enslaved Africans, the first documented instance of such a transfer in British North America. This event went beyond mere numbers; it symbolized the brutal shift towards systematic, race-based slavery, a dark chapter that would define the lives of countless Black individuals for centuries to come.

Prior to 1619, the status and treatment of Africans varied in the colonies. However, this date marks a stark change where their lives became explicitly defined by chattel slavery, impacting them and their descendants significantly. This system directly led to the development of racial hierarchies, segregation, and discrimination that continue to shape the experiences of African American communities today.

Understanding 1619 is crucial not only for its historical significance but also for prompting critical conversations about reparations, reconciliation, and building a more just future. It allows for a deeper appreciation of the resilience and ongoing contributions of African Americans to American society. While acknowledging earlier African presence is important, 1619 remains a powerful symbol of the beginning of chattel slavery and its lasting legacy. It serves as a reminder of the past, urging us to confront its consequences and work towards a more equitable future.

Care Guide

We use the latest printing technology to offer a wide variety of products and color options. We use high-quality inks that won't fade for a long time if taken care of properly.

Keep in mind that garment blank manufacturer's care instructions (tags) don't take into consideration the printing process. So we suggest following the care instructions on this page to learn how to take care of your printed garments properly.

Keep your apparel looking great for ages:

  • Printed apparel can be machine-washed cold, inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and like colors.
  • Use non-chlorine bleach only when necessary. You shouldn't use any fabric softeners or dry-clean the items.
  • Printed apparel can be tumble-dried on a low cycle, but hang-dry works best.
  • When it comes to ironing, use cool iron inside-out.
  • Don't iron the print.

Follow these instructions carefully to avoid fading and cracking of the print, and shrinking of the garment that can occur if you wash or dry it on a high setting. Pro Tip: For ANY garment, it is especially wearing too rough tumble dry with heavier items (blankets/towels/jeans/etc).

  • A Culture Vulture Free Zone

    Look, we're all for inclusion and the diverse celebration of Black History. However, it has become increasingly common for NON Black-owned companies to sell Black Culture while also falsely claiming to be Black-owned. This practice of cultural appropriation is not only dishonest but also disrespectful to the Black community. By profiting off of Black culture without actually supporting or empowering Black-owned businesses, these companies perpetuate systemic inequality and contribute to the erasure of Black voices and perspectives. It is important for consumers to do their research and support authentic Black-owned businesses that prioritize social justice, equity, and circulation of the Black dollar; rather than those that simply capitalize on the latest cultural trends.
