2018 marks our Racial Justice Poster Project’s 10th anniversary. We want to use this milestone to lift up the artistic legacy of racial justice movement building, paying tribute to the courage of artistic and cultural ambassadors engaged in the ongoing struggle for racial justice locally and nationally.
We are excited to announce this year our featured artist is Oakland-based Afrofuturist Joshua Mays. Joshua’s murals are an act of storytelling inspired by looking to the future that we want to create, while also honoring lessons from our ancestors. His work often features images of women of color immersed in magical realism and science fiction. His murals can be found on several buildings in Oakland. We will be unveiling his poster, titled ‘Transmission: Received’ with an artist spotlight on March 21.
