The earliest use of protest posters dates back to the 16th century, and they continue to be a powerful tool to amplify one’s voice in a community. While there have been many artists that used their art to protest, we tend to associate protest posters with significant cultural events. From issues like racism and police violence to organized resistance, today’s protest posters continue to feature hard-hitting slogans and bold artwork to communicate one’s point of view.
At this free gathering, we’ll provide materials to create your own poster to motivate and educate on topics of social justice, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King’s life’s work.
