Thank You Tees is a T-shirt apparel company that brings awareness to the countless contributions of Black Americans.
As a public health practitioner, Stephanie was aware that the vaccination process actually came from an enslaved person named Onesimus. However, when she mentioned him to her friend and later co-founder, Veronica Chapman, she was surprised to have not heard about this influential figure. After further conversation, they realized there was a significant lack of inclusion of Black Americans in any of their education settings. They both sought to change that and started Thank You Tees as a way to help educate the general public about the countless contributions of Black Americans.
