This shirt was inspired by “The Muse Brothers”. TwoAlbino brothers who were kidnapped at 9 and 6 years old, by a guy name Robert Stokes who worked in the Circus Industry. The reason he kidnapped these Albinos brothers was because of their distinct physical characteristics, which was the Circus biggest attraction at the time. As the brothers got older they were encouraged to let there hair grow into long locs to add to their look. While they were becoming one of the biggest  Circus attractions, their mother Harriet never gave up looking for them. After years of searching the Mother had a prophetic dream that she would see her boys at rowing oak circus show, and that dream actuallybecame a reality. The mother made her way to the front of the crowd, and the Muse Brothers recognized their her immediately despite being told she had passed away. During their Emotional reunion the Muse Brother manager said they were his property. But Harriet didn’t back down and said these are my kids can’t no white man make black babies. She was able to leave the show with her sons that day and after she filed a legal suit against the Circus for back pay. Because the whole time the Muse Brothers were in the circus they were not getting paid, she won the legal suit.
