This black history travel mug makes a powerful statement about the means for downtrodden people to achieve equality.

Pearl Bailey knew that the only way for women and people of color to rise up was for the white power structure to find it uncomfortable to rule. When she said that, “A crown, if it hurts us, is not worth wearing,” she meant for the oppressed people of the world to make wearing the crown hurt. Everyone has the means to contribute to the cause, it just takes finding your own way to conquer the challenges. And, Bailey knew a thing or two about overcoming obstacles.

Bailey’s life and career reached iconic status in a time when black people still had to sit in the back of buses. In 1976, she became the first African-American to receive the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award, joining a list that would one day include black actors like Sidney Poitier, James Earl Jones, Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis. She was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1988, just two years before her death at age 72.

Honor the legacy of one of the true icons of African-American culture and share her words of wisdom with others as you enjoy your morning coffee. This mug will keep your java hot on the way to the office as it helps you make a small, but meaningful, contribution the cause of equality.

  • 14 oz. capacity
  • Insulated construction to keep hot beverages hot
  • Also keeps cold drinks chilled
  • Makes a wonderful black history gift
  • Available in white or silver colors
