Gordon Jones rattles off, in an almost perfunctory tone, the many things that he has been in life: a boat captain. A private pilot. A marketing representative for Xerox in Houston. A caregiver, sadly, for his dying father in Sacramento. What he does have, though, is a story — one that he tends to tell from the middle, starting on the Saturday morning when it became clear that Joe Biden would be our next president. There are a lot of things going on.
A powerful photo illustration of newly minted Vice President-elect Kamala Harris walking alongside the shadow of civil rights trailblazer Ruby Bridges was being shared at a furious pace on Twitter and Instagram. Even Bernice King, the daughter of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Jones recognized the photo illustration immediately.
He had helped create it for his fledgling online brand, Good Trubble. Goeller shook her head. Jones and Goeller are a bit of an odd couple. Jones is 62 years old and Black. Goeller is 23 years old and white. The story of how they ended up stuck together is even odder. It begins at a little pub in Sausalito. It was , and Donald Trump had just been elected president. Jones had recently returned to his native California after living for several years in the U.
Virgin Islands. He remembers ripping into his friends over drinks one night. As the child of a family of activists from Palo Alto, he quickly went from anger to figuring out how he could contribute to the newly formed resistance. The shirts sold out. Then, as Trump was trying to ban travel to the U. Norris, understandably busy, instead referred Jones to his assistant, Goeller. Originally from Louisiana, Goeller has lived in multiple states and countries and only landed in the Bay Area in January.
The idea to do an illustration featuring Harris came from Jones. He wanted to empower little Black girls by showing the arc of progress — from a 6-year-old Bridges facing down an angry mob to desegregate a school in Louisiana to a year-old Harris strutting in heels, perhaps on her way to her office as vice president.
Even as a 5-year-old — Ruby is only about three years older than me — I knew what was going on. Good Trubble also has reached out to the Ruby Bridges Foundation in hopes of getting her to a limited of prints to sell and raise money for the nonprofit. Not long after the photo illustration went viral, Bridges shared it with a comment on Instagram.
A few days later, she announced that her mother, Lucille Bridges, who dutifully walked her daughter to school every day alongside federal marshals, had died — making this week of progress for Black women a little bittersweet.
