Case study

Is a Nigga a Citizen? a.k.a. the Black Citizenship Project

The Black Citizenship? Project, also known as "Is a Nigga a Citizen?" was a series of public interventions in Boston that took place in the weeks leading up to July 4th, 2015. Dozens of artists and collaborators, organized by the Design Studio for Social Intervention, staged unauthorized dance performances, poetry, performance art, and demonstrations in response to the recent, and not-so-recent violence against Black bodies, and the impunity of the perpetrators.

I created several posters to wheatpaste around the city, as well as the postcard/schedule.
