This book is featured in an upcoming Poster House event. Join designers Kelly Walters, Jason Alejandro, Anne H. Berry, and David Jon Walker for a panel discussion on how the influence of family, cultural origins, and ancestral heritage takes form in design practice. The designers will look reflectively at their upbringing, present objects that maintain cultural significance, and share their experiences as design students, educators, and practitioners, as discussed in Black, Brown + Latinx Design Educators: Conversations on Design and Race by Kelly Walters. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and will receive a 10% Discount on the book. Reserve tickets here!
In Black, Brown + Latinx Design Educators, Kelly Walters collects twelve deeply personal interviews with graphic design educators of color who teach at colleges and universities across the United States and Canada. The book centers the unique narratives of Black, Brown, and Latinx design educators, from their childhood experiences to their navigation of undergraduate and graduate studies and their career paths in academia and practice. Their impactful stories offer invaluable perspectives for students and emerging designers of color, creating an entry point to address the complexities of race in design.
