About the Cover Artist: Addis-Ababa Barge
I’m a graphic design student at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in Denver. As a Black designer, it’s important to me to advocate for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities in professional and creative spaces. I’m so excited to have worked with the CU team to design the fall cover on the importance of increasing representation and advancing inclusion of people of color in legal education and the legal profession. I decided to symbolize the Anti-Racism and Representation Initiative by turning Lady Justice into a Black woman. Her raised fist symbolizes solidarity with the recent protests and calls for racial justice worldwide. Women of color are among the most marginalized groups in the legal profession, and she symbolizes that representation is necessary for there to be true justice.
