This crew neck t-shirt pays homage to the African diaspora. It highlights African history and cuisine honing in on a specific beverage that knows many recipes and knows many names, but that has kept our cultures and communities connected over the centuries!

Jamaicans and much of the Caribbean know it by sorrel or as red drink. Many West Africans, including Liberians and Ivorians, know it as bissap. In Ghana, it's called Sobolo and in Nigeria, it's called Zobo (or Zoborodo).

A 2018 NPR article notes thousands of narratives from formerly enslaved African-Americans were collected as part of the 1930s Federal Writers' Project. Within those collections are many references to red drinks served as part of celebrations on U.S. plantations during slavery and after Emancipation. Red drink continues to be served at Juneteenth celebrations today.

This African diaspora beverage is most commonly made and brewed from roselle hibiscus and additional spices.

This shirt feels soft to the touch, and washes well on cold with like colors. This shirt is lightweight, with the right amount of stretch. It's both comfortable and flattering! Turn your shirt inside-out when washing to best preserve the printed text area long-term. Thank you for shopping with SuHe Shops.

This product is made especially for you as soon as you place an order, which is why it takes us a bit longer to deliver it to you. Making products on demand instead of in bulk helps reduce overproduction, so thank you for making more thoughtful and less wasteful purchasing decisions!
