Muslim T-Shirts Project

Project statement

In September of 2002, The United States Government implemented a “special registry” system to “certain” individuals. Disturbingly reminiscent of the “management” of Japanese-Americans during WWII, the special registry haunted many Americans of middle-eastern/Mediterranean descent. To exacerbate the situation, reports of hate crimes and violence towards Muslims and those mistaken for Muslims was beginning to be all too frequent on the evening news…. This project was in reaction.
