MAKERERE UNIVERSITY - SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL AND FINE ARTS
Founded in 1922, Makerere University is one of Africa's oldest and most prestigious universities. Both of my parents graduated from Makerere before immigrating to the United States. Many post-Independence African leaders call the university their alma mater. With such a rich history, I found it crazy that I couldn't purchase the apparel anywhere.
Call it nostalgic, but I always wanted our children to have Makerere apparel similar to collegiate t-shirts you see in the West. Instead of waiting around for someone else to make the gear, we decided to make it ourselves.
Many African and African-American parents believe that to make it, a person should study Medicine, Finance, Business, etc. We've purposely highlighted the School of Industrial and Fine Arts because we know this couldn't be further from the truth. This t-shirt is for all the dreamers, who believe their creativity is all they need to succeed.
