This exhibit is the outcome of UMD Assistant Professor Terresa Hardaway’s assignment “The Movement Imprinted: Music of the Revolution,” in which Hardaway asks her students to create pieces based on a song about the African-American experience, and she specified that their design should emulate an African-American graphic designer. Along with the posters, the winning bid will also receive a designed booklet that details information about the song, musician, designer, and the student's progress.

Auction has expired without any bids.

Hell You Talmbout is the title of the piece I created from the song written by Janelle Monáe ft. Wondaland Records with inspired design by designer Emory Douglas. This piece has been constructed to honor those who have been killed through police brutality and bring attention to the injustice that is happening. This resembles the lyrics of the song Hell You Talmbout along with the bold differences in color choices I have chosen which closely mirror my designers work.
