UniTee Design Featuring Obama and Lil Wayne Track

Foremost, I applaud your efforts to help our children read to succeed !

UniTee Design is better educating today’s youth by connecting our people and maximizing our resources. Caring citizens, parents, students, schools, groups, businesses, churches, and many others are working with us to create more academic successes for more children.

“UniTees” (custom designed tee shirts proudly featuring the red, black and green colors of African American culture) teach our younger generation a rich history and heritage to uplift self-esteem and self-identity. And sales of UniTees help fund and develop a variety of youth education programs and initiatives.

As founder of The Better Detroit Youth Movement, I’m intent on establishing higher levels of communication, cooperation and collaboration among youth and community service providers to mobilize action and maximize better outcomes for Detroit children and teens.

The urgency to revive the power of our people in unity to achieve higher levels of academic successes for our youth is obvious. Thus, we welcome collaborations for a common cause and greater good.

Please check out this short video ( to learn about a growing movement that’s empowering brighter futures every day.

Let’s continue to encourage others to do their part in uplifting the quality of life and learning for our younger generation.

Let’s stand together to show the world how smart, beautiful and special our children really are.

This is an outstanding idea. I have a daughter who is only 8, but her friends were beginning to clash in ways we as women sometimes do. The parents of these girls decided to help them bond in a positive way, so we have created our own book club. We don't have a name or anything, but we meet for 3 or four hours. The girls choose the book, the parents plan non stop acitivites centered around the book, including strong recall, comprehension and vocabulary. Away from the pure academic side of things, I am so pleased how this has begun to influence their self esteem and problem solving skills in social situations. These types of situations come up in conversation, but we get to address it in a safe group. I can only imagine the in-depth discoveries that can be made at the high school level!

Please consider adding Raven Magwood's book to your list. She's a 15 year old author and motivational speaker. Read more about her on my website, Look at the Extraordinary Youth page.
