FUCK RACISM POSTER
FUCK RACISM POSTER
The F**K Racism poster comprises of an original black and white self-portrait photograph complimented by experimental typography. This piece was created in response to the many social injustices inflicted upon marginalised communities but its inception was the Black Lives Matter Movement in the USA. I created the piece as a form of protest, and in my own small way to contribute to the collective voice against discrimination and prejudice. My husband is Arabic and my daughter of mixed race so I do not feel I can stand idly by whilst BAME communities are subjected to racism. As a white woman I acknowledge my privilege and I am striving to learn and do better as an ally. I know I have a lot to learn (and unlearn) but I can start by saying fuck racism at the top of my voice and let it be known I won’t tolerate that bullshit.
As part of this project I have donated to a charity in the UK which is close to my heart, Give racism the Red Card. https://www.theredcard.org/ The site has wonderful resources and provides training and support in education in the UK. Please consider donating to this wonderful cause.
