Detroit to Dakar

Design Action Collective

This poster was commissioned in 2010 by the US Social Forum. The name “Detroit to Dakar” is based on an initiative by U.S. based organizations who worked together coordinating activities for the U.S. Social Forum in Detroit in June 2010 and the World Social Forum in Dakar in January 2011.

Organizers highlighted Africa and the African diaspora related issues while focusing on a vision of linking the struggles of people in the U.S. and Africa. This graphic was created to celebrate that work, and was used for the Left Turn magazine cover that coincided with the U.S. Social Forum in Detroit.

Students in universities across the county and well as refinery workers continue their strikes against the current oppressive regime.
