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.

“Voice in the Cell” is dedicated to those who are voiceless feel like they can’t speak out against a broken, corrupted world. It tries to express views into their perspective to try to see their pain, their struggle, their experience that may be different or similar to your own. It is created to show the regret of things never spoken to tear down the ignorant mindsets of those who don’t think of what they are really saying. The visual imagery is used to show the viewpoint of who feel suppressed by others discriminating against them due to just their skin color. It tries to show the pain to those who don’t see it or are seeing another viewpoint, to give a glimpse of what someone might feel who isn’t fortunate enough to feel safe or comfortable because of how they’re treated due to skin color.
