The Design + Social Justice Symposium presents Suzun Lucia Lamaina’s Revolutionary Grain- A collection of contemporary portraits and stories of former members of the Black Panther Party.

Suzun Lucia Lamaina, BFA, MA, is an independent scholar, social documentary photographer, teacher and photographic historian. Her work focuses on portraiture that reveals the interconnectedness of her subject’s essence and the environments in which they live. A former colleague and student of Farm Security Administration photographer, John Collier, Jr., Suzun is acutely aware of the visual language of photography and the role it plays in providing a discourse about visual communications.

Her forthcoming book, “Revolutionary Grain: Celebrating the Spirit of the Black Panther Party in Portraits and Stories,” will be published in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of the Black Panther Party in October, 2016.

The events and exhibitions of the Design + Social Justice Symposium will highlight the visual communications, stories and portraits of revolutionary social movements and will examine how graphic design was a tool for organizing. The graphic artifacts that will be exhibited represent the role of art as a revolutionary force and how art and design can communicate about a need for social change. The symposium will examine the role of graphic design in creating messages that promote civil and human rights, preservation of the environment, and advocacy of equal opportunity. The lectures, panel discussions and exhibitions will feature images and printed matter.

The Design + Social Justice Symposium is sponsored by UNL’s Hixson-Lied Fine and Performing Arts Visiting Artist Program, Institute for Ethnic Studies, Love Library, the Faculty Senate Convocations Committee and the Department of Art & Art History. Special thank you to The Sheldon Museum of Art and Humanities Nebraska for their generous support.
