One Lit Mission!  




When Stella & Throne Soapery first heard about EqualiTees's message of radical inclusivity, we insistently knew THE ROOT was an idea we could firmly support and stand behind.

Stella & Throne Soapery, Equali Tees, and Vanessa Cobbs Partner for The Journey Home Campaign.

We've proudly partnered with Shaun Williams, founder of Equali Tees because of their brand's synonymous message of inclusivity for all! The idea behind Equali Tees is simple...Everyone is equal, but we also love and respect the fact that we're also all different...creating a community around a shared belief of quality for all. Equali Tees believes in celebrating both facts, just as Stella & Throne Soapery believes in celebrating the skin you're in! Along with the help of Social Activist and Television's TLC Alum Vanessa Cobbs, The Journey Home campaign aims to enlist the support of corporations, organizations and individuals to secure funding for African Ancestry DNA kits for African American students in educational institutions across the USA.  In the near future, we'll announce more information about the specific individuals and educational institutions we've had the honor and pleasure of working with. In the meantime, please check out the link below to learn more about the brand merch and products that make this all possible!

Here are some ways in which you can help further the cause

"Equali Tees is a social justice driven lifestyle brand. We celebrate everyone being equal, but we love and respect the fact that we're also all different....creating community around a shared belief of equality for all!”

"There is a lot of value in the intersectionality of our identities. Once we start connecting those lines within ourselves and out to one another, we begin to realize how much stronger we are together."

A WORD, from Founder Shaun Williams

"When I realized the positive implications of knowing my identity before slavery and the impact that such knowledge could have on my life, I decided that I wanted to take an ancestral DNA test. After doing research into the different options I decided that African Ancestry was the best way to go. African Ancestry is the only company of its kind that can connect people of African descent to a specific tribe in modern-day Africa. Because African Ancestry doesn't sell information or use your DNA for purposes of financial gain, their kits are a bit more costly than others. Realizing the barrier this could create for people, I decided to connect one of our shirts to the cause. I am thrilled to be able to help give people the experience of knowing their history."
