Terresa Moses

Creative Director at Blackbird Revolt

  • Activism

Terresa (she/her) is a proud Black queer woman dedicated to the liberation of Black and brown people through art and design.

She uses creativity as a tool for community activism through projects like her recent solo exhibition, Umbra. Terresa is the Creative Director at Blackbird Revolt — a social justice-based design studio — and an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design and the Director of Design Justice at the University of Minnesota. As a community engaged scholar, she created Project Naptural, which creates spaces to educate, connect and empower Black women about their natural hair and self-identity, and Racism Untaught, a curriculum model that reveals ‘racialized’ design and helps students, educators and organizations create anti-racist concepts through the design research process. She is currently a PhD candidate in Social Justice Education at the University of Toronto. She also serves as a core team member of African American Graphic Designers (AAGD) and as a collaborator with the Black Liberation Lab.
