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.

Somebody, is inspired by the song ‘I Am Somebody’ by Johnnie Taylor and the designer Eddie Opara. It is all made by manipulating text and the colors are inspired by my designers work. It is about one conquering the mountain of oppression to prove that they are someone and that they are important too. I was purely inspired by the song title and wanted to portray someone working their way to the top to show that they are somebody.
