Read To Freedom is in honor of those who fought for the civil right to read during the anti-literacy laws in America that prevented people of color, black people, African Americans from learning how to read. Many slaves acquired their own freedom through learning and knowing how to read, and these shirts acknowledge that reading was and is still a road to freedom.
Read to Freedom is also for the promotion of literacy, and this is why 50% of all proceeds from Read To Freedom merchandise will go towards benefiting schools and school children.
Stay Free, Keep Reading. Read To Freedom.
