TUBMAN over Jackson

 

Originally designed by NYC artist Dano Wall, the Harriet Tubman Stamp has become the new “face” for artistic activism. In response to the recent postponement of Tubman replacing Jackson on the $20, popularity for this stamp has increased. The original image for this stamp comes from a carte-de-visite portrait of Harriet Tubman taken by Benjamin Powelson in Auburn, New York in 1868, currently the earliest known photograph of her.

Tubman Over Jackson

Dano Wall has set a goal to stamp as many $20 bills in circulation as possible. We have decided to join in with our 20+ years of experience creating stamps for money; projects including the currency tracking site WheresGeorge.com and Ben & Jerrys political movement to get money out of politics called the Stamp Stampede.  

How You Can Get Involved

Our stamp is made with high quality photopolymer and offered on two types of mounts; Self-Inking Stamp and Acrylic Mount Stamp. Both mounts have been designed to ensure a precise impression on every bill; the Acrylic Stamp has a round notch that lines up with the Federal Seal and the Self Inking Stamp is lined up to use the border of the bill for proper placement. 

Who was Andrew Jackson?

In the war of 1812, Major Jackson rose to fame when led the defeat of the British in New Orleans.  As the seventh President, Jackson came to the office with an overwhelming popular vote with a platform based on direct representation. 

He was a supporter of ending the electoral college and chose to utlize his veto power instead of following Congress with policy making decisions.

Who was Harriet Tubman?

Harriet was born into slavery in 1822.  Following her personal escape she chose to return enabling some 70 others to escape over 13 trips with the help of the Underground Railroad.   

During the Civil War she participated as an scout and spy for the U.S. Army.  She was active in the Womens’ Suffrage Movement.  

She has become an icon of courage and freedom.

 

What is the US Treasury Doing?

In 2016 the Obama Administration announced that Tubman would replace Jackson in time for the 100th Anniversary of Womens’ Suffrage on the $20 dollar bill.  Now Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says that the bills redesign will not hit circulation until 2028 at the soonest.   For those who still want to celebrate Womens’ Suffrage and Harriet Tubman an inexpensive rubber stamp can help to expedite the timeline.   

Is it LEGAL?

Yes, it is legal legal to stamp or write on money.  The law simply states that it’s only illegal to deface currency “with the intent to render the bill unfit to be reissued.” Since our goal is to have Harriet in  circulation, it’s legal. The United States is one of the only countries with this viewpoint and it enables us to share our political insights with our hard earned money.  

Harriet Tubman

Nicknamed “Moses”, Tubman led groups of slaves to freedom with the help of the Underground Railroad.  She also facilitated former slaves to compete with the waves of poor Irish immigrants for work in the North.  Since the Fugitive Slave Law transformed many Northern States into increasing hostile areas many fled to Southern Ontario for relief.  

Tubman’s dangerous endeavers required spunk and ingenuity rarely seen before in women let alone women of color in an age that the practice of slavery was common place.  She used the inclement weather of winter to reduce the odds of being seen and discovered.   

Days Until the Treasury Releases their Tubman Bill

Billion $20 Bills

Stamp Styles to Choose From

via tubmanstamp: On April 21, 2016, the day after then-U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced plans to add Harriet Tubman to the front of the twenty-dollar bill, Donald T***p was interviewed on the Today Show. He made his intentions clear: "Andrew Jackson had a great history and I think it's very rough when you take somebody off the bill. Andrew Jackson had a history of tremendous success for the country.... I would love to leave Andrew Jackson and see if we can maybe come up with another denomination. Maybe we do the $2 bill or we do another bill. I don't like seeing it."
.
The T***p administration had officially scuttled the plan to put Harriet Tubman on the $20.
The ubiquity of currency makes it a powerful vector through which the mentality of white supremacy can continue to permeate our culture. This is why it was such a pivotal moment when it was announced that Harriet Tubman would appear on the new $20 bill. This would constitute a monumental symbolic change, disrupting the pattern of white men who appear on our money, and by putting her on the most popular note in circulation, indicate exactly what kind of a life we choose to hold up; what values we most hope to emulate.
The impact that seeing the face of Harriet Tubman staring back at you from a $20 bill cannot be underestimated. Who we choose to honor as a society affects the moral attitudes that are baked into us as we grow up, and this sort of representation can subtly but deeply effect someone's conception of themselves and their place within society. This is not a trivial issue to be forgotten, it remains profoundly significant, and worthy of continually pushing back into the spotlight.

The Trump administration may have put the brakes on $20 bills bearing Harriet Tubman’s image, but a Brooklyn artist has come up with a #3D stamp that can provide a clever workaround—if you want it. As Jasmine Weber writes for HyperAllergic, artist #DanoWall was inspired to create the stamp after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced last year that the Treasury was no longer “focused” on adding #HarrietTubman to the $20 bill. In 2016, the Obama administration laid out a new plan for the denomination that would have #Tubman replacing famed ethnic cleansing enthusiast Andrew Jackson (he would, however, still be on the back of the bill). The proposal drew mixed reviews, as Weber notes. Online, people expressed enthusiasm for having a Tubman $20—which would make her both the first black person and the first woman to be featured on U.S. paper #currency. But the fact that the iconic abolitionist would share a note with Jackson, who helped enact the mass genocide of Native Americans, left many underwhelmed. Still others noted the U.S. economy’s long, tangled history with racism, which began with chattel slavery. To have Tubman honored on a symbol of U.S. capitalism felt inappropriate, and some wondered whether Harriet herself would approve of the idea. But with Wall’s stamp, the currency can become a pseudo-reality; for those interested in the stamp (because you gotta spend that money anyway, I suppose), it can be downloaded and printed off Thingiverse. And yes, it’s perfectly legal for you to stamp your money—you just can’t burn, shred, or otherwise destroy it. “I would like to see Tubman $20s entering circulation in sufficient numbers to generate conversation about the proposed, now abandoned, plan to replace Andrew Jackson with her,” Wall told HyperAllergic. He added that he wants to make 100-200 more Tubman stamps “to circulate as gifts, museum donations, or prizes,” and is also considering using them to raise money for #civilrights advocacy organization the Southern Poverty Law Center.
