Tell Her’ by Juana Alicia, commissioned by Akonadi Foundation as the 2019 Racial Justice Poster. 

‘“What Will You Tell Your Daughters About 2016?” is a call to arms, to resist the madness of the current era of rising fascism, racial hatred, gender discrimination, misogyny, and white supremacy. Hodge proclaims the birthright of women to create a more humane society, an intergenerational legacy to be sung frequently, whenever the odds seem too great.’
