Out now, global streetwear and backpack brand, Sprayground has launched a new limited-edition Harriet Tubman backpack in honor of Black History Month.
The special drop is a modern way to honor Tubman’s monumental legacy of political activism and sacrifice. Each backpack features a large portrait image of the $20 bill, with Tubman’s most iconic image on it.
In case you’re wondering, yes–Tubman is set to be the new face of the $20-dollar bill, however, the redesign has been delayed until 2028. This new bill will present a long overdue and dynamic shift in American history as it will be the first to feature an African-American woman on any US currency.
Sprayground owner and creative director David Ben-David wanted to create a bag honoring the original pioneers of the civil rights movement to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.
Of the new launch Ben-David adds, “It’s an honor to be able to put an iconic historical figure in American culture on a Sprayground backpack. Harriet Tubman’s activism influenced a great part of American culture and to be able to pay homage to such an amazing leader in our nation’s history during Black History Month is truly a privilege.”
The limited-edition Harriet Tubman’collection is out now, sold exclusively at sprayground.com and select boutiques nationwide, while styles last.
