Grandmothers of Austin

The Stockyard Institute
Price
$5

The Austin community is on Chicago’s Far West Side and is anchored by a group of women who look out over their neighborhood for the sake of the children. These grandmother gatekeepers are the powerful protectors of the young. The kind-hearted benefactors of supple and uncertain lives. Their steady efforts amidst manifold risks are invisible to many, but not those that depend on them to rise up and grow. Bridging wisdoms that will not be erased, tracing (her)stories to know the meanings of today. Original block print by Watie White, text by Jim Duignan.

Printed at the worker-owned Stumptown Printers, Portland, OR.

This is #90 in the Celebrate People’s History Poster Series.
