In recognition of Black History Month, each student was randomly assigned a historical figure to create a provocative biographical poster. I was assigned Walter Francis White, an American civil rights activist who led the NAACP for nearly a quarter of a century. His light skin and blue eyes allowed him to ‘pass as white’ which aided in success when investigating racially based lynchings and murders.
Our posters were printed in large format and displayed around the Seattle Central campus for several months.
Instructor: Marc Salverda
I design a free poster every week. Next week it could be yours!
