She also pointed to a magnet that was mislabeled as DuBois. It actually pictured Booker T. Washington, the business leader and founding president of the college that became Tuskegee University. Similarly, a magnet labeled Washington actually depicted Woodson, she said.
Ms. Espy said the accompanying cards also misidentified Woodson, DuBois and Washington.
“I get it, mistakes happen, but this needs to be corrected ASAP,” Ms. Espy said in the video.
In an interview on Saturday, Ms. Espy, 26, who teaches 11th-grade U.S. history at a high school in North Las Vegas, said she bought the tin of magnets for her children, ages 4 and 6, as an educational tool for Black History Month.
Ms. Espy said she was alarmed to discover the mistakes.
“I was upset because I was like, how does this get to so many people, so many levels, and put into stores, and I caught it in 10 seconds?” she said. “Whoa, this is not OK.”
Bendon Publishing, which produces books of stickers, dress-up dolls and other magnet kits, did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but on Saturday, the magnet kit was not listed among its titles on the company’s website and Amazon page.
