Marsha P. Johnson 

(August 24, 1945 – July 6, 1992), born and also known as Malcolm Michaels Jr., was an American gay liberation activist and self-identified drag queen. Known as an outspoken advocate for gay rights, Johnson was one of the prominent figures in the Stonewall uprising of 1969. Johnson was a founding member of the Gay Liberation Front and co-founded the radical activist group Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries. Johnson was known as the “mayor of Christopher Street” due to being a welcoming presence in the streets of Greenwich Village. From 1987 through 1992, Johnson was an AIDS activist with ACT UP.

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 on a lightweight 5 oz. Hanes ComfortSoft pre-shrunk 100% cotton crew neck plain white tee and is available in five sizes.

Washing Instructions: Machine gentle wash in cold water and regular temperature dry
