CARRY IT ON

graphic design
THE PROJECT

This poster is a dedication to the ex political prisoner and freedom fighter Assata Shakur. She was active in the black liberation movement, the student rights movement, and the movement to end the war in Vietnam. The quote Carry It On celebrates legacies of resistance to White Supremacy as echoed in her poem The Tradition.

SUMMARY

While it was revealed in 2013 that the FBI has placed a million dollar bounty on Assata Shakur, this poster echoes the principles of self-determination that transcend individual, monetary, and contemporary significance.
