For Good

This exhibit presents work created by sixteen senior level graphic design students in the Department of Art and Design specifically designed for SPHR conference and inspired by “going against the grain.”

Moral Courage Project

The Center's Moral Courage project develops multi-platform, multi-media products that utilize audio recording, photography, music, and writing to bring stories to life. Both exhibits will be on display: 

  • America the Borderland 
    A border wall splits the sister cities of El Paso and Juarez as a symbol of distance and exclusion. The choice to love one another beyond borders is an act of resistance. Our students traveled to El Paso, Texas to interview and photograph human rights advocates, community leaders and faith leaders about their commitment to immigration rights work at the U.S.-Mexico border. 
  • Ferguson Voices
    The people of Ferguson have a story to tell – and one that the majority of those in the United States have not heard or fully understood. The stories captured in Ferguson Voices are a testament not only to the systemic discrimination that the Ferguson protests laid bare, but also to the power of transformative action taken to foster community, accountability and justice. 

SPHR19 includes the following book signing events:

  • Twitter and Tear Gas: The Power and Fragility of Networked Protest
    by Zeynep Tufekci | October 2, 2019
  • Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World
    by Anand Giridharadas | October 3, 2019
