Oh, and one of the reasons there is such a stir about our image is here. When something so beautiful comes out of corporate America it deserves celebration~

Here is the Letter we sent:

Dear Beloved Calendar Customers,

Thank you for supporting our nearly 50-year-old family business.  The Dolphin Studio deeply values each and every one of you whether you’ve been supporting us since 1970 or you are new to our tribe.

It has been brought to our attention that our original February 2019 image portraying Colin Kaepernick to celebrate Black History Month is seen by some as controversial.

We get it.

The ffrench family continues a long line of racial justice seekers, so it is important to note that we see Colin Kaepernick’s actions as brave respectful and honorable.  We support Mr. Kaepernick’s ability to bring racial injustice to a national and international stage. 

We also support our customers’ desire to step away from the inundation of controversy and divisiveness of these unprecedented times.  For this reason, you will find 2 different February pages in your 2019 calendar.  Feel free to choose the one that best suits your environment.

 

Thanks to Katrina Britney Davis for capturing, and allowing us to use the image of Colin Kaepernick we used to generate our original calendar page for February 2019.

 

Stay tuned for a stand-alone poster of Colin Kaepernick in my shop this fall – proceeds to support https://knowyourrightscamp.com/
