The MZCM "TSU SPIRIT" Sneaker
This sneaker is the fruit of collaboration and innovation. The Mt. Zion College Ministry (MZCM) in Nashville, Tenn. is a progressive, relevant, outreach embassy led by Pastor Christian Carson. MZCM provides a safe space for growth, relationship, and community for college students throughout Middle Tennessee and beyond. As one of the largest historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the United States, TSU serves as a spearhead for MZCM and a prominent example of community leadership and spiritual commitment.
The "TSU SPIRIT" sneaker designed by Pastor Christian and TSU alum, Jeffrey Thomas, celebrates the rich history and culture of TSU -- from the notable Humanities Building, dating back to the university's origin, to the fighter jet that welcomes students and visitors outside the Student Center, to the TSU Tiger itself!
Bishop Joseph Walker III, Senior Pastor of Mt. Zion, launched this college ministry 30 years ago. As a tribute to his vision and consistency, a portion of the proceeds of every shoe sold will support the MZCM Impact Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships for future TSU students.
*The inside side of the right sneaker is red and the inside side of the left sneaker is blue.
