The Different Branches, Sharing Roots tee was designed by UO student Miles Lawson, recipient of The Duck Store Black History Month Design Grant. The design was inspired by the University of Oregon's 2022 Black History Month theme, Nuance Noir(e). 100% of proceeds from this shirt will be donated to the University of Oregon's Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Cultural Center to advance Black student success and support programming, recruitment, retention and community-building initiatives.
Nuance Noir(e): The essence of Blackness is complex and nuanced therefore this year's theme, Nuance Noir(e), embraces the dynamic intersections of what it means to be Black. Despite being faced with racism and hatred, resilience and joy invigorates the rich culture that unites the Black community. Black is an inclusive term of African American, African, Afro-Latine, Afro-Caribbean, and all others who have African Diasporic roots. Nuance Noir(e) is a matrix illustration of Blackness at the University of Oregon.
