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 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.
