Is there a (free/open source) black and white emoji font?

I wonder if there is a free black and white emoji font out there. All of the ones I have seen are in full color, but there are the two Unicode glyphs ☺, ☻, that’s all I have seen.

Microsoft Segoe UI Symbol
Microsoft has a very high-quality emoji set in its Segoe UI Symbol/Emoji font. And because of copyright law, in which things have to be copyrighted separately for different uses, there shouldn’t be anything keeping us from using it to create printed type:

FireFoxEmoji
This might be from an old pre color version:

Twitter’s Emoji font
Twitter open sources its emoji font. This doesn’t have a black and white version, but it does have black and white fallbacks. If I can figure out how to extract or trigger the fallbacks, this could be great.
