This pack of twelve postcards features illustrations of famous black heroes and heroines accompanied by their powerful words. Included are the Obamas, Maya Angelou, Harriet Tubman, Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Colin Kaepernick, Stacey Abrams, Louis Armstrong, Faith Ringgold, Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr, and Josephine Baker. A percentage of every sale will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

I wanted to create a series to honor some of the amazing black heroes and heroines who fought (or are still fighting) for equality in their own way, whether through art, athletics, activism, music, politics, or poetry.

I hope you enjoy sending these postcards as much as I enjoyed making them. They could also be framed and hung on a wall!

The cards are printed on 4x6 semigloss card stock with space on the back to add a personal message.

The cards read:

The Obamas: Yes, we can.
Faith Ringgold: I just decided when someone says you can't do something, do more of it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.: ...but by the content of their character.
Jackie Robinson: There's not an American in this country free until every one of us is free.
Colin Kaepernick: Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.
Stacey Abrams: We can use our words to fight back against oppression and hate. But we must also channel our words into action.
Louis Armstrong: Love, baby, love. That's the secret.
Josephine Baker: You are on the eve of a complete victory. You can't go wrong. The world is behind you.
Harriet Tubman: For no man should take me alive; I should fight for my liberty as long as my strength lasted.
Thurgood Marshall: We must dissent, because American can do better, because American has no choice but to do better.
Frederick Douglass: He is a lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins.
Maya Angelou: You don't have to think about doing the right thing. If you're for the right thing, then you do it without thinking.
