Meet the limited edition version of our Rebel Sweatshirt. The first run of this blouson-sleeve sweatshirt is dedicated to the pioneering Shirley Chisholm. Inspired by Chisholm’s 1972 Presidential campaign slogan, this version features embroidered hand-drawn detail by illustrator Sophia Chang. Chisholm challenged societal norms to give marginalized groups a voice, becoming the first black Congresswoman and the first black woman to run for a major-party presidential nomination.
“If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.” – Shirley Chisholm
In the spirit of activism, we have taken the first step on behalf of our community to give back to The Shirley Chisholm Project of Brooklyn Women’s Activism. We hope you will join us in honoring and promoting activism.
