African Poster Collection

The African Poster Collection includes posters from all regions of Africa, focusing on diverse themes such as apartheid, human rights, film festivals, and voter education. Some examples of posters included in the collection are: a series of voter education posters published by the Institute for a Democratic Alternative for South Africa, a collection of hairstyle and fashion calendars from Nigeria, and several farming and dairy posters from Zimbabwe. These posters, in addition to many others, can be found in the Country Index (below).


The collection also includes reprints of many popular African film posters, such as those published by Nuovi Graffiti d'Africa and La Cinematografia Egiziana. These posters can all be found by using the Film Poster Index (below).


Many of the posters are written in English, but the collection also contains many posters written in Swahili, Hausa, Arabic, Tigrinya, and Portuguese, as well as other languages.


All posters can be used through the African Studies Collection Office in the Herman B Wells Library, Room E660.


Additional posters can be found in Northwestern University's Herskovits Library's African Posters Collection.
