My entry into @threadless #blackhistorymonth challenge, scoring here or check the link in my profile – https://www.threadless.com/designs/i-too-am-america/ 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. https://www.poetryfoundation.org/collections/101640/celebrating-black-history-month 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 https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/47558/i-too 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
