My entry into @threadless #blackhistorymonth challenge, scoring here or check the link in my profile – I wanted to try something #typographic for this challenge. From experience, a few words can have as much impact as a powerful image. I decided to educate myself and got lost in this site celebrating black, American poets. I have to mention Maya Angelou Michael S. Harper and Angela Jackson but Langston Hughes really stood out to me. The full poem can be read here 2020 was so tough for so many reasons, people using patriotism as a mask for racism seems to be a historical problem all around the world and must change. That’s why these words seemed so powerful in this context. I’m donating 25% of any profits made to Reclaim the Block. #art #design #illustration #typography #langstonhughes #itoo #reclaimtheblock #tshirt
