ERNESTINE Post Earrings
These beautiful rainbow bar earrings are a perfect example of something small sending a large message. Individual voices sometimes make the biggest difference. About the name: Ernestine Eckstein was the first lesbian civil and political rights organization in the United States. She was frequently one of the only women — and the only black woman — present at early LGBTQ rights protests. Eckstein was also an early activist in the black feminist movement of the 1970s and was involved with the organization Black Women Organized for Action. According to historians, she viewed the fight for civil rights and LGBTQ rights as intrinsically linked.
