BROWN VS BOARD MURAL
This mural is located across the street from the Brown v. Board National Historic Site. The mural explores themes of equality and justice through the eyes of young people in our community. Artist Michael Toombs directed the painting of the 130' x 30' wall along with a team of artists and thousands of members of the community. We believe that there could not be a better time to push forward the central tenets of the Brown case – bringing this important part of American history to life anew."Thank you ARTSconnect for hiring me to contribute my creative talent with such an amazing collective! It was a pleasure to work,sweat,eat, and create with 30 other artist that I can proudly call apart of my creative art family! Thank you Michael and Cat for keeping all of us spiritual and balanced!
