Activating History for Justice

 
 

This report was a collaboration with Miel Design Studio and the Duke Human Rights Center at FHI. It was important for this piece to reflect both the history of Duke while also pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the future. The design reflected this through contrasting images and subtle design elements.  

 

More about the report from FHI: 

This report recommends that Duke University expand efforts to acknowledge, engage with and activate its past, and include ties to slavery, white supremacy and segregation; unfair and discriminatory labor practices; benefits from a lethal product, tobacco; and discrimination against women, LGBTQ and disabled people and people of color. Duke should also seek to identify and celebrate our diverse forbears, among them those who integrated the university and pressed for justice, advocated for fair labor treatment and worked to better society.
