"The is no agony like burying an untold story inside you."

- Zora Neale Hurston


We're thrilled to sell t-shirts that represent The Amistad's brand and legacy. The design features our journal's masthead across the front chest. On the back, is a beautiful quote by Howard alumni Zora Neale Hurston which sits below our spine mark.

The shirts were screen printed by local DC design company, A Life Well Dressed. They are of extremely high quality with an image that will not fade. The fabric is extremely soft and breathable. The shirts are available in grey or beige. We have small, medium, large, x-large, & xx-large. All shirts are $20.00 with free shipping.*

We are not making a profit from any t-shirt sales. All proceeds will go towards a fund that assists Howard creative writing students with publishing, MFA applications, creative writing contest fees, conferences, or other ways which can help elevate their careers.


Since we're a small literary journal, we're always looking for funds to help us expand. Feel free to make a donation. The money will be used to help cover the costs of publishing as well as assisting students with their writing goals. 



We're a small journal trying to raise money. In order to keep things simple, the cost of domestic shipping is included in the price. Items will be shipped within 5-7 business days.
