This historic 90s tee comes from the Million Woman March, a largely successful grass-roots march organized in Philadelphia in 1997. The main focus was to address issues facing African American communities in Philadelphia, hoping to bring awareness and strengthen black communities and families. Around 750,000 women gathered on Benjamin Franklin Parkway, many of whom came from buses, trains, and planes from around the country. 

The march was held two years after the Million Man March in 1995. Unlike its predecessor, the Million Woman March did not rely on any national organizations like the NAACP or Nation of Islam. Instead, they used a network of women's organizations, fliers, black-run media, the internet, and "word of mouth." Influential black speakers at the event included Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, former wife of Nelson Mandela. 

The graphic shows a map of the United States, with stamps that read, "Million Woman March," "Get on the bus!!!" and "Stop the violence!" On the back, it reads, "Remember black man, you're born a suspect,"

Fits like a modern unisex adult large. It has an over sized, baggy fit. It has some discoloration, see pics.
