I didn't like the so-called "inspirational" posters available out there, so I made my own! I wanted to include women and people of color without the cheesy cliches we are so used to seeing in classroom art.
You can also buy these posters individually in my store for $4! The bundle (discounting each poster to $3) includes:
--- Feminist icon Audre Lorde: "It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences."
--- Baseball icon Babe Ruth: "Every strike brings me closer to the next home run."
--- Literary hero Louisa May Alcott: "I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship."
--- Civil rights icon MLK Jr: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
--- Great poet, author, and personal hero Maya Angelou: "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
--- Educator & philosopher Paulo Freire: "Power comes from risking ourselves in creation."
The image files can be printed full size in high resolution at 24x36" or at a smaller size if that's preferred. I usually print these at Office Depot or Staples on bond paper, which without laminating or mounting costs only a few dollars. Very affordable!
