(August 2, 1924 – December 1, 1987) was an American writer and activist. As a writer, he garnered acclaim across various mediums, including essays, novels, plays, and poems. His first novel, Go Tell It On The Mountain, was published in 1953 and Giovanni’s Room in 1956.  Themes of masculinity, sexuality, race, and class intertwine to create intricate narratives that run parallel with some of the major political movements toward social change in mid-twentieth century America, such as the civil rights movement and the gay liberation movement.

The Blackface Project™ 

is not about blackface, minstrels, and demeaning caricatures. While the history of blackface is sad, there is no need to continue to give the word power but rather compassion for those who used it in the past and today in entertainment, fashion, and politics. 

The Blackface Project™ re-defined are images of historical American figures that have made significant contributions to humanity and who have a face that is black...in her many shades.

The image is printed with fade-resistant inks on a lightweight 5 oz. Hanes ComfortSoft pre-shrunk 100% cotton crew neck plain white tee.
