* After a brief downtime caused by major supplier issues, the amazing and infamous Black History bowties are finally back!
Initially launched in 2015, BlackHistoryBowties.com was an instant success as it quickly became the only online destination that sells printed bowties featuring African American heroes.
The unique pre-tied bowties are hand-crafted to perfection, made with premium 100% double-brushed cotton and polyester, and the printed design will never fade.
Even more, the newer and improved bowties are more durable and the quality is 10 times better. Retailing for just $14.95 each, the bowtie designs include Rosa Parks, Frederick Douglass, and Jackie Robinson, – but many more are on the way (including Thurgood Marshall and a Harlem Renaissance theme)!
Here’s what customers are saying:
“This is a great idea for men, especially older men! They will love it!” — W. Moss from Ohio
“Way cool! I love it!” — B. Ann from Virginia
“These ties are very impressive!!” — E. Hawkes from Maryland
“This is a great way to wear your history, in style!” — D. Marquette from California
Here’s what each of the bowties celebrates:
The Jackie Robinson bowtie celebrates the life of Jackie Robinson as the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era, and his huge accomplishment when he broke the baseball color line when the Brooklyn Dodgers started him at first base on April 15, 1947.
The Rosa Parks bowtie celebrates the life of Rosa Parks as an African-American Civil Rights activist, whom the United States Congress called “the first lady of civil rights” and “the mother of the freedom movement”. It also pays tributes to her contributions to equal rights for all Americans.
The Frederick Douglass bowtie celebrates the life of Frederick Douglass as an African-American social reformer, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping from slavery, he also became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive anti-slavery writing.
