SAADA Spotlight

Special Edition Premala Poster

Tax included.
Size: 12″×18″

To celebrate AAPI Heritage Month, we collaborated with artist Bhumika Muhkerjee to create a special edition poster featuring the incredible life of Premala Shahane, who first arrived in the U.S. in 1923. Premala was a South Asian American trailblazer—an educator, activist, medical professional, musician, and more; this beautiful poster captures her many passions. We hope you join us in sharing her story and life by adding this beautiful art to the walls of your home, school, work place, and more. 

This product is made especially for you as soon as you place an order, which is why it takes us a bit longer to deliver it to you. Making products on demand instead of in bulk helps reduce overproduction, so thank you for making thoughtful purchasing decisions!

What's the story?

Premala Shahane arrived in the U.S. in 1923 and studied at the University of Michigan, Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania, and Columbia University. She went on to be an activist, educator, medical professional, musician, and more. Her story is preserved in SAADA’s Premala Shahane archival collection of photographs, newspaper articles, and more, which reflect on the joys and challenges of being away from home.
