In our eyes, James Baldwin is the godfather of "wokeness". Pushing conventional thought through his writings was his main method of challenging the status quo. Our earliest memories of Baldwin call back to him, cigarette in hand, pushing back on white America's perception of the African-American struggle and lifestyle. No stranger to dissent, JB carved an unmatched trajectory of cool, straddling the line of popular culture while bringing to light many issues of race and gender stereotypes. This shirt pays homage to that spirit.

We're also donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each "The Original Baldwin" tee to "Children's Literacy Initiative" to help sustain the next generation of unapologetic boundary-breaking writers and intellects.
