Meet the Founder

Hello, I am Viola Joyner, the Founder of MCC.  We launched in June 2023 with a few items, with designs to produce more, more and MORE.  Check back daily to see what's new in our store.

If you are a fellow Black woman, then we know how exhilarating and empowering it feels to walk into a store and see products that are designed with us in mind.  After all, representation matters.  Enter Melanated Culture Club, a Black women-owned business that creates t-shirts, apparel, accessories, and home goods that highlight the Black American Experience.  We are committed to creating trendy fashion products that educate, inspire, and celebrate our Black culture, historical moments, our Black heroes and sheroes and, “the word on the street.”

 Melanated Culture Club is a company that doesn't just want to sell products, we want to use fashion as a means of empowering and uplifting people of the Black community and other marginalized groups.  When you wear or use one of our products, you are proudly representing our resilience, fortitude, and pride.
