Inspired Agitators poster series

Posted in Uncategorized on March 12, 2010 by inspiredagitators
Inspired Agitators is a series of posters of international activists and actions whose vision and determination have inspired me. The series includes John Heartfield, Howard Zinn, Lucy Parsons, Emily Wilding Davison, Phil Ochs, Red Cloud, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Nellie McClung, Tommy Douglas, and Paul Robeson. History is embedded with obstacles that must have seemed insurmountable. Yet, again and again, battles are waged in climates of indifference, hostility and brutality. This collection represents inspired moments in history when an Indian Nation wore down the U.S. government, an artist defied the Nazi party, women achieved the right to vote, a socialist government was elected in North America, universal healthcare was implemented, a union for all was organized, a woman was finally accepted legally as a person, a black man fought public lynching.
