The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG) have created a traveling poster exhibition highlighting diverse historical boycott movements from the 1950s to the present. "Boycott! The Art of Economic Activism", features 59 posters from more than twenty boycotts, including the Montgomery Bus Boycott, United Farm Workers’ grape and lettuce boycott, divestment from South Africa to protest Apartheid, boycotts of corporations using sweatshops, the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divest and Sanctions, and many others.

They are colorful, powerful, and a must-see!
