Teen Artists Design Meijer’s Black History Month Apparel

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Teen and local artists are teaming up with Meijer to design Black History Month clothing to sell in stores.

Western Michigan Center for Arts and Technology brought together local high school students Minni Peters and Anala Millbrooks with Jalexia Stoutmyre, a professional artist and WMCAT instructor, to design Clothes which honors Black History Month.

The first design is a t-shirt with candy hearts that read with sentiments such as “love your curls, black is powerful, black is beautiful, love black, honor black history”.

The second is a sweatshirt that features a timeline of black historic accomplishments on the sleeve.

The clothes will be sold in all Meijer stores as part of its Black History Month clothing collection. Over 6,000 t-shirts and sweatshirts will be available for purchase.
