Poster Contest Winners Announced at the 26th Annual Human Rights Day
The winning artwork is featured in a 2010 calendar distributed to conference attendees, and presented here. Contestants were challenged to create a poster that depicted what they thought the conference theme quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. means in our society today:
"Where Do We Go From Here?" "Many of the ugly pages of American history have been obscured and forgotten.... America owes a debt of justice which it has only begun to pay. If it loses the will to finish or slackens in its determination, history will recall its crimes and the country that would be great will lack the most indispensable element of greatness—justice."
