Step into the footsteps of Malcolm X and carry his message of empowerment with you wherever you go. This tee features a thought-provoking quote from Malcolm X, serving as a reminder of the ongoing struggle for civil rights and the importance of standing up for what's right.
Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925, in Omaha, Nebraska, was a prominent African American leader and civil rights activist. Raised in a family deeply affected by racism and violence, Malcolm's early years were marked by hardship and discrimination. After the death of his father and the institutionalization of his mother, Malcolm and his siblings were split up and placed in foster homes and orphanages.
In his youth, Malcolm engaged in criminal activities and was eventually arrested and sentenced to prison for burglary. During his time in prison, he underwent a profound transformation. Inspired by the teachings of the Nation of Islam, Malcolm embraced Islam and adopted the surname "X" to symbolize his lost African heritage. He became an avid reader and educated himself while in prison, delving into topics such as history, politics, and religion.
Upon his release from prison in 1952, Malcolm X became a devoted follower and spokesperson for the Nation of Islam, led by Elijah Muhammad. He quickly rose through the ranks of the organization, captivating audiences with his fiery oratory and uncompromising stance on racial pride and self-defense. Malcolm's passionate advocacy for Black separatism and self-determination earned him both admiration and controversy.
However, Malcolm's views evolved over time, especially after his pilgrimage to Mecca in 1964, where he experienced a transformative spiritual awakening and embraced a more inclusive approach to Islam and civil rights. He broke away from the Nation of Islam and founded his own organization, the Muslim Mosque, Inc., and the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU), advocating for unity among all African Americans and addressing broader human rights issues.
Tragically, Malcolm X was assassinated on February 21, 1965, while delivering a speech in New York City. His untimely death cut short a life dedicated to fighting against racial injustice and promoting Black empowerment. Despite his brief life, Malcolm X left an indelible mark on the struggle for civil rights and continues to inspire generations with his message of empowerment, self-determination, and social justice.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
