Bring that Spelman sparkle everywhere you enter and celebrate Sophia and Laura who did what no woman had ever done before by adding the “Founders” Tee to your collection. The legacy continues. The Founders 1881 Tee is a bold expression of her Spelman roots. This design encapsulates the founding year of her illustrious Spelman roots with hundreds of oval-shaped rhinestones.
