BIPOC Business Showcase: Mbk Clothing
Tim McCray’s business, My Brother’s Keeper Clothing, came from deep personal tragedy. He lost his younger brother to gun violence.
“I was just trying to figure out how to turn something negative into a positive and kind of help him live on,” McCray said.
The clothing line got its start in 2017. McCray said he had an entrepreneurial side, but his little brother left behind three children. So he was motivated to take care of his own and his brothers’ families.
He offers women’s, men’s, and kids’ sweatsuit sets, hoodies, T-shirts, tumblers, and keychains. He has new inventory coming in soon.
My Brother’s Keeper will be at the Northland BIPOC Business Showcase on Saturday. McCray is looking forward to learning and getting ideas from other businesses there.
The BIPOC Business Showcase goes from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11 at The Depot in Duluth.
