About Susan Spangler

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator, observer and survivor. My website, www.susanspangler.com, contains a wide portfolio of my projects and images – some for pay, most for love, many for both. These graphic essays are inspired by things that catch my eye, my ear, my heart. Funny, confounding, astounding and encouraging, all at once. You know. Life.

        Susan. Can you please email me. I am teacher and I want to know How to download you Say Their Names See Their Faces poster to print larger than 24x 18

      • Hi Brian – I’d be happy to email you the file for the “See Their Faces, Say Their Names” poster. I formatted it to print at 24″x18″, so larger than that may degrade the resolution somewhat, depending on how much you want to enlarge it. My guess is that it would still hold up pretty well at 3ft x 2ft, though I haven’t tried it at that size. If you take the file to a printer like Staples or FedExOffice, you can ask them to print a letter-size portion of it at the size you’d like, to see how it holds up, before you take the plunge of printing the whole thing. Meanwhile, if you send me your email address, I’ll get you the PDF file.

        I’m very happy to think this poster can be used as a teaching tool. I don’t know if you read the post at https://shygirltalking.com/2020/07/11/see-their-faces-say-their-names/, which contains all the original images that appear on the poster. It also includes an essay I wrote about the history of lynching in America. Much of the source material for that essay came from the Equal Justice Initiative’s excellent report, “Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror,” which is available through the EJI website.

        Thanks so much for getting in touch. I’d be really interested to hear about the course work you’re designing.
        All my best – Susie Spangler

    Amazing and powerful. Also so sad and tragic. May God rest their souls and may we find a way to stop this insane killing. Thank you for your message and wonderful artwork. Please greet Barbara for me and give her a hug, thank you!

    So moving and powerful.

  4. Stephen Corbin says:

    It is important to feel the lives that have been unjustly taken. This should affirm for all people of good will the necessity of speaking up and standing up. Finally.

  5. Thanks, Steve. That’s exactly my hope.
