I've never owned a doll in my life, but I want one now. HINT, HINT. #RBG action figures from #FCTRY are now available. According to a spokesperson from FCTRY, for each action figure sold via Kickstarter, the company will donate $1 to an organization aligned with that action figure’s values or life’s work. For example, FCTRY raised over $10,000 for the DNC with its Obama action figure launch, and its Evil Trump figure raised over $8,000 for the ACLU and close to $3,000 for Border Angels. For the RBG action figure, FCTRY will be making donations to the #NationalWomensLawCenter. . . . . .

The #NationalBoardofReview just named #GreenBook best film of the year along with @ViggoMortensen for top acting honors! Great performances, great movie! Don't miss it. . . . Green Book is named for a real travel guide for African Americans in a Jim Crow era. Green’s intended purpose for his guide was “to give the Negro traveler information that will keep him from running into difficulties [and] embarrassments.” Green admonished the black motorist to “Keep this guide in your car for ready reference.” . . In a 2010 NPR interview, civil rights icon Julian Bond recalled the importance of the Green Book during trips with his family while growing up. “It didn’t matter where you went — Jim Crow was everywhere then,” he stated, “and black travelers needed this badly. My family had a ‘Green Book’ when I was young, and used it to travel in the South to find out where we could stop to eat, where we could spend the night in a hotel or somebody’s home.” SOURCE: Time Magazine . . . . .
