This paper explores the impact that African American designers in Chicago and Southern California had on the civil rights movement and future Black designers. African American designers were essential in protesting and representation in the civil rights movement which lead to its expansion and finally the acceptance of African Americans in everyday life. Their struggle also greatly impacted generations of African American designers to come.
