Sterling Heights Women’s Juneteenth T-Shirt Design Benefits Her Hometown

When Porsha Webb designed her shirt, she was simply practicing some techniques she learned in class.

But the end result impressed colleagues – and eventually management – that it’s now available to buy online.

“I took the Psycho Bunny picture, put the colorful print behind it, and wore it to work one day,” she told FOX 2’s Lee Thomas Friday. “People we love you.”

The design pays homage to the June 19 holiday, which honors the official end of slavery in America. With the logo of the clothing brand, which has a store at the Somerset Collection where Webb works, she used traditional African colors in the design.

This way, she could tie the brand to the holidays in one design.

“The original design actually had the word Juneteenth there, but I used the reds, blacks, greens, African colors to bring it together. But I just wanted to tie the two together so it could represent” , she said.

There’s even more information about Webb, the design and the vacation on the tag that comes with the garment.

Webb graduated from Eastern Michigan University, but is originally from Saginaw.

With his blessing, she chose the non-profit Houghton Jones Neighborhood Association as the source from which the proceeds from the sale of the t-shirt with her design will go.
