Exhibition graphics: How to respond to hate crimes

Overview of 8 posters

Detail of one of the eight posters

Syracuse University Library wanted to put together a small exhibition on Anti-Asian Hate Crimes to mark the 14th anniversary of Denny’s Incident at Syracuse. On April 11, 1977, according to AsianWeek, a group of three Asian American students, three Japanese international students and one white student were denied service at Denny’s restaurant, and were yelled racial epithets and beaten by a gang of white patrons at the parking lot after they exited the restaurant. To respond to the Incident, I thought of making a how-to-respond guide for victims and witnesses of the hate crimes–steps they can do to help report the crime, to make it visible among peers and community. Each poster stand on its own, and is measure 8.5 by 11 inches. Together they form a coherent group and hopefully create visual interests for students passing by to look at.
