I worked in a shoe store back in the 80s and one of the brands the store carried was Anne Klein (mainly espadrilles, IIRC). My job was stocking the shelves and I can easily recall the lion logo on the boxes and on the toes of the shoes.

This is one of those tricky questions that you have to watch the phrasing.

Guion Bluford was indeed the first African-American to go into space.

He was not the first African-American astronaut - that was Robert Lawrence Jr (MOL program), who died before getting into space.

He was not the first black in space -- that belonged to Cuban "guest cosmonaut" Arnaldo Tamayo Méndez, who went to Salyut 6 in 1980.
