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.

This piece is about the song “We’re A Winner” by the Impressions, which was released in 1968. It’s inspired by Aaron Douglas who is a designer in the 1930s. The artist and designer work very well together because most of their work is about uplifting one another and showing that we are all equal.
