After a teacher observed that a Black History Month activity book jumbled together Civil Rights insignia, Target pulled it off shelves.
"The Civil Rights Magnetic Learning Activity" mismatched Carter G. Woodson, a historian and author, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Booker T. Washington, a novelist and educator.
The flaws were first noticed by TikTok user Issa Tete, who demanded the books be removed off stores. In a video with over 800,000 views, the U.S. history instructor said she detected discrepancies as soon as she opened the book.
She proved the civil rights leaders' drawings were messed up by comparing them to historical images. An photograph of DuBois was mistaken for Woodson, who in Washington. Washington was mistaken as DuBois.
The error was found by Tete, who stated she understood.
"..But this needs to be corrected ASAP," stated.
Target informed NBC Chicago that it will no longer sell the kit in stores or online. The store also informed the product's publisher of the mistakes.
Tette issued a follow-up video on Thursday, thanking fans for reporting the inaccuracies.
"...I never blamed Target I just told them to take if off the shelves..." she said. "It was you guys who really took off with it and making this viral, and that's awesome."
Tete, a history teacher, wouldn't overlook the error.
"...i wasn't going to let it slide for my 200 students, and I'm not going to let it slide for my two babies who I am responsible of teaching."
