In honor of Alabama’s 200th anniversary of statehood, we partnered with the Alabama Humanities Foundation to create the Making Alabama Poster Series. The objective of the Struggle Poster was to vividly capture the historical essence of Alabama from the year 1940 to 1965.
The Struggle Poster illustrates the larger-than-life struggles and bold stands for justice and equality that defined this era in Alabama history. Key moments of the Civil Rights Moment are portrayed through graphic and photographic elements, representing the cultural revolution that culminated in Alabama and ultimately transformed our nation.
The Struggle Poster has captured the attention of thousands of Alabamians with its unique portrayal of the Civil Rights Era. It is now used as a teaching tool for Alabama history on field trips, museum visits and in the classroom.
