Slim Pickins

Slim Pickins

On the corner of Main Street in Stephenville, Texas sits Slim Pickins Outfitters, the first Black-owned outdoor shop in the Country. Owned by Jahmicah Dawes and his wife Heather, the shop has become a staple in the community that represents fellowship, allyship and outfitting friends for their next adventure. More than retail, the Dawes are telling a story of hope and reconciliation, of community and friendship in an America that desperately needs to hear it.
