The United States Congress has honored her as “the first lady of civil rights” and “the mother of the freedom movement”. Parks was not the first person to resist bus segregation, however she became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation that lead to the November 1956 decision that bus segregation is unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
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.
