Target has pulled an item celebrating Black history from its shelves over the misidentification of several Black icons.

The “Civil Rights Magnetic Learning Activity” was removed from shelves for incorrectly identifying W.E.B. Du Bois, Booker T. Washington and Carter G. Woodson.

“We will no longer be selling this product in stores or online,” Target said in a statement to USA TODAY on Thursday. “We’ve also ensured the product’s publisher is aware of the errors.”

USA TODAY also reached out to the book’s publisher, Bendon Publishing, but did not immediately get a resposne late Thursday.
