    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: Classic "Equality" Pin. This may qualify as a Roosevelt & Washington jugate, but the Washington we're talking about is Booker T. Washington. Titled "Equality", this was one of a series of pins issued following the uproar associated with the visit by the head of the Tuskegee Institute to the White House. Washington appears rather casual, with one arm draped over the back rail of his chair. He shares a shot of booze with the president. One of several varieties, this is decidedly anti-Roosevelt. It infers that if African-Americans are treated equally, they will not show due deference and respect. This 1¼" example displays well, but has a small ding in the center on Washington's hand and a crimping defect on the curl.
