DEOMI releases 2014 National African American/Black History Month observance poster

PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – In observance of African American/Black History Month, celebrated each year during the month of February the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) proudly announces the availability of original artwork available for download from DEOMI’s public website, www.deomi.org. You may simply click the image of the poster on this news release to go directly to the poster’s download page. “The idea for this year’s poster came from the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) Call for Papers regarding their 2014 theme, “Civil Rights in America,” which focuses on the 50th anniversary of the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. It mentions advocates of social justice such as Frederick Douglass, W.E.B. Dubois, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Fanny Lou Hamer, but also includes leaders who subordinated their roles to the general cause as women or members of the gay and lesbian community for the greater good like Pauli Murray, Bayard Rustin and James Baldwin. The background image is an etching of Frederick Douglass superimposed onto an image of the Civil Rights Act,” explained Mr. Peter Hemmer, DEOMI Illustrator.

Please note that you may download the hi-resolution poster image file and take it to your preferred printing facility for display in your organization or use during your special observance programs. All DEOMI special observance poster images are high-resolution and may be used to print posters up to 30 X 40 inches. DEOMI does not have the capability to print posters and mail them out to customers upon request. All DEOMI observance month poster files are in the public domain unless otherwise indicated.
