"Spread Change" T-Shirt
The son of slaves who used the hardships of the 1900s to lend his voice to other blacks by founding "The Chicago Defender".
A few page pamphlet distributed strictly in black neighborhoods grew like crazy! At its pinnacle, readership of "The Defender" met half a million a week. The content was current to the times, as it highlighted issues afflicting black people during a time of Jim Crow, and the tragic deadly riots of Chicago in 1919. Abbot was a catalyst
Abbott was one of the most prominent post slavery millionaires. His success fueled a path for future publications such as Jet and Essence magazine.
Thank you for being a Changer, Mr Robert Abbott.
