Caption
This round pinback button harshly criticized District of Columbia Mayor Sharon Pratt Kelly. The pin features a photographic portrait of Pratt Kelly against a blue background, surrounded by white lettering reading “She Doesn’t Have a Clue”. The Democrat was elected mayor in 1990 but failed to secure the nomination in the party’s primary of 1994.
The button is among more than 200 collected by longtime Anacostia resident and social justice advocate Howard Croft.
