I was invited to be the keynote speaker for Midwest Design Week. My topic was centered on “Design for Liberation.” The ‘racialized’ systems in which we exist were designed to oppress and marginalize the experiences and voices of Black people. To change these systems, we must use design to work with our communities to reimagine a future free from discrimination and violence. A future where the design process is anti-racist at its very core and design approaches seek justice and liberation as the outcome for all Black people.
