When you choose to support black-owned businesses, you’re supporting black pride, unity, and self-determination. Black small business owner and Etsy shop seller, Jackie Carson founded Tees of New York brand in 2018 with these ideals in mind. While that may be intimidating to some, it would mean the world to many families and communities.
Black entrepreneurship is a tool for survival in a world that does not want to see you win. When we choose to win against all odds, young black children grow up seeing successful entrepreneurs and a thriving community.
Tees of NY has successfully serviced the community at large with her custom gift ideas and was inspired in 2020 to design and make 200 New York Tough t-shirts for health care professionals and front-line personnel as a thank you gift for all their courage, hard work and commitment.
