Shaya Ishaq - Freedom School Shirt
Printed on 100% cotton and screen-printed in Canada, these shirts feature a design by artist and activist Shaya Ishaq. The design features the words "Freedom School BLM" basing her concept around symbols of learning and Afrocentric colours, hoping it will spark conversations and action to support and uplift Black folx in our communities. All proceeds from the sales of this shirt have been split equally between commissioning Shaya's design work, and the Freedom School program run by Black Lives Matter Toronto. Freedom School is a response to the lack of humanizing, self-affirming, queer-positive education opportunities for Black children in the GTA. The program is designed to teach children about Black Canadian and diasporic history, to engage children in political resistance to anti-Black racism and state violence through a trans-feminist lens, and to offer children an entry point into the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Made in Canada.
