A tribute to the student movements of the 1960’s, this print celebrates the sit-ins which led to the de-segregation laws of the United States. The main text of the piece is “Teach Students to Engage in Acts of Resistance.” Remembering and teaching our radical histories can inspire others to take action to create a more just world. Give love to the people who have fought for all we have won, and continue the struggle. It’s important to remember that we cannot rely on the government or legislation to give us justice- laws can maintain inequality as easily as they can provide opportunity. We must work to establish a more just world – building power through community and from below.
This is a linoleum block print with two colors of spray paint stencil. There is some variation in the shades of yellow and green in the print.
