Mom's Stencil is a display typeface inspired by the demonstrations that resulted in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
To be more specific, Mom's Stencil is inspired by this image of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, in which a child carries a sign at Jefferson Bank and Trust Co. in a demonstration against alleged discrimination in hiring practices at the bank in St. Louis on Aug. 31, 1963. It is demonstrations such as these that led to the declaration of Title VII in the Civil Rights Act. *
“It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer … to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.”
— Title VII, Civil Rights Act of 1964
