Our T-Shirt of the Month for December 2021, made of 100% organic cotton by a worker-owned co-operative, and supporting shack-dwellers organising in South Africa and grassroots labour unions in South Asia. In unisex fit, featuring a design by multidisciplinary Afro-Indigenous Artivist Renata Doré inspired by the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the women like Rosa Parks and Claudette Colvin whose activism helped bring it about. The boycott led to the desegregation of public transport in Montgomery, Alabama. The design includes the starting and ending date of the boycott and aims to create visibility for Black women through images that value the collective memories of the Afro-diasporic population.
