New Maya Angelou Cultural T-Shirts


Maya Angelou and Malcolm X

We recently added some commemorative Maya Angelou T-Shirts to the website to help our community of customers find items that will help them celebrate and remember the life of this powerful orator and civil rights activist. Her activism and the fact that she worked with Malcolm X and Martin Luther King are not mentioned as frequently as her poetry or book writing skills but we must not allow this part of her life and service to mankind to be overlooked as we reflect upon her legacy.

We currently have a small quantity of cultural t-shirts featuring her image in both a Men's style and Ladies style. We hope to get more in stock soon so get yours while supplies last. << Read More
