This adult unisex shirt features a line of black people alongside a billboard ad with the words "The Highest Standard of Living." Taken in 1937 during the Great Depression, the image is often mistaken for an unemployment line, but it is people seeking help after a Louisville flood. This is one of photographer Margaret Bourke-White's most well-known images and it was also once recreated for a Curtis Mayfield album. The tee is soft, 100% cotton, and ready to wear. Available in multiple sizes and several colors, it also offers side seams for greater durability. Check the included measurement chart for just the right fit. An excellent gift for black history buffs.
