This message serves as the official announcement of the grand opening of…
You care about racial justice. The merchandise at this store will let you share your commitment to racial progress with the world.
Our initial offering is the “Justice Takes Sides” collection.
In these tumultuous times, we are faced with issues of moral clarity—do masks and vaccines help stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus or are they a ploy by the government to curtail personal freedom? Was the 2020 presidential election stolen or lawful? Is CRT the devil or a propaganda scheme designed to roll back racial progress?
Where do you stand?
The t-shirt simply says “Justice Takes Sides”
Here’s how I explain the concept:
In his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech in 1986, Holocaust survivor and writer, Elie Wiesel said,
"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."
We cannot position ourselves in the middle when issues of justice and the well-being of our neighbors are involved. Justice takes sides.
Let the world know where you stand.
Also featured in this inaugural collection is a lapel pin with one of my favorite, pithy phrases “History has the receipts.”
I study the history of race, religion, and social movements, but you don’t have to take my word by itself. If you want to know what people really thought and how they acted, just look to the past. The primary sources tell the story.
If you’re like me, you like to think through decisions—sometimes overthink! I’ll just say this…supplies are extremely limited. If you’re at all interested, the best time to purchase is now.
As a thank you and a special gift, if you place your order within 24 hours of this message (by July 3 at 6:00 am CT), you can get 10 percent off your order (automatically applied at checkout)!
In the future I will add more shirts with different phrases, more lapel pins, and other products. I’m excited to engage in this new venture with you.
Remember…By purchasing from Tisby’s Merch Store you are supporting a Black-owned business and support educational efforts about racial justice.
Thank you for your support!
