Designer Comments

The goal was to communicate the stark reality, tension, and drama of the Civil Rights era, which all too many are beginning to forget.

Judge Comments

This cover displays a masterful balance of elements. The overall effect is a deep sense of tension, and yet hope in the midst of struggle. Elegant and emotive.
