As a followup to the “See their faces. Say their names.” essay and pictures that I posted earlier this month, about African American victims of lynching in America, I’ve created a poster that includes all 35 of the portraits that appeared there. The people in these portraits represent the thousands of Black people who have been lynched in this country. All of their lives have mattered.
This poster file is available for downloading free of charge to anyone who would like to print it. It can be reproduced clearly up to 24″x18″ in size. (To download, just right-click or control-click on the image of the poster, and choose “save image as.”)
By downloading it, you are acknowledging that I hold the copyright and therefore are agreeing that no one else will present this art as their work or sell it for their own profit. (Charitable organizations may be excepted. Please contact me to make an arrangement for that kind of use.) Beyond that, I think it would be totally wonderful for you to share this with others, as long as those conditions are understood and agreed to.
Devastating to see this after watching John Lewis’ funeral-
For me, too. But also, I hope, a reminder to keep doing what we can to get into “good trouble.”
Great work!!! Good sister!!!
Beautiful tribute and reminder of our loss. I saw this a long time ago and wanted to post it in our poetry box in the front of my house. We’ve had George’s image as a memorial of him there. Thank you so much.
Sadly, so many more have been lost since this.
