“Women back then in the 1900’s weren’t able to do anything. They couldn’t vote,wear pants, join the military, smoke in public, work fair hours. Women and Men should have equal rights. Women couldn’t do anything we do now. It was time women spoke up but not everyone would listen. “

PROJECT: Photography students were challenged by art teacher Lindsey Holliday to create imagery based on their own personal passion or connection to themes of Peace and Social Justice in regards to Equality and Equity. Students viewed and discussed the Equality/ Equity Illustration, Bisa Butler’s The Safety Patrol quilt, Shepard Fairey’s American Rage poster, and Frank Willis Thomas’ Branded photograph. They also viewed the series published by Amplifier Art, 12 Conversations Seek Common Ground. Students were encouraged to develop their ideas in a plan and create their artwork using media and techniques of their choice.
