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.

Someday We’ll All Be Free is a piece I created for the song written by Donny Hathaway with the design inspiration from the graphic designer Michael Freestylee Thompson. I wanted this music poster to display Freestylee’s powerful design style with bold colors and eye catching patterns. The song Someday We’ll All Be Free is a deep, emotional song written about mental health but was then later interpreted about oppression. I wanted my poster to give a universal feel so everyone could interpret it in their own way.
