NYSUT 2016 Women's History posterFREE WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH POSTER

NYSUT celebrates Women's History Month in March with a free poster highlighting Harriet Tubman, an African-American abolitionist, humanitarian and Union spy during the American Civil War. In the post-Civil War era, Tubman also participated in the women's suffrage movement. Tubman escaped from slavery in 1849 and, four years later, led a series of rescue missions to free enslaved family and friends using the Underground Railroad, a network of safe houses and antislavery activists.

NYSUT 2016 Black History poster

FREE BLACK HISTORY MONTH POSTER

NYSUT marks Black History Month in February with a free poster honoring the nine parishioners who lost their lives in the June 2015 shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. The tragedy inspired a national discussion about race, leading to the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the South Carolina Capitol, and the removal of other Confederate symbols in many Southern cities and states.
