The Incredable History!

Political buttons played a significant role in the civil rights era, serving as tangible symbols of activism and a means of expressing support for various causes. The use of buttons as a form of political expression gained momentum in the 1960s during the height of the civil rights movement in the United States.

These buttons often featured powerful slogans, iconic images, or the faces of prominent civil rights leaders. They served as portable statements of solidarity and were widely used during protests, marches, and other events advocating for equal rights.

One iconic example is the "I AM A MAN" buttons worn by participants in the Memphis Sanitation Strike of 1968. The slogan emphasized the dignity and humanity of African American workers who were demanding fair wages and better working conditions.

Buttons also helped raise awareness about specific events and campaigns, such as the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963, where participants proudly wore buttons to showcase their commitment to the cause. The imagery and messages on these buttons played a crucial role in conveying the spirit and goals of the civil rights movement to a broader audience.

In summary, political buttons from the civil rights era served as powerful visual tools for activists, allowing them to express their commitment to equality, justice, and social change in a tangible and widespread way.

  • A Culture Vulture Free Zone

    Look, we're all for inclusion and the diverse celebration of Black History. However, it has become increasingly common for NON Black-owned companies to sell Black Culture while also falsely claiming to be Black-owned. This practice of cultural appropriation is not only dishonest but also disrespectful to the Black community. By profiting off of Black culture without actually supporting or empowering Black-owned businesses, these companies perpetuate systemic inequality and contribute to the erasure of Black voices and perspectives. It is important for consumers to do their research and support authentic Black-owned businesses that prioritize social justice, equity, and circulation of the Black dollar; rather than those that simply capitalize on the latest cultural trends.
