MLK Mural Project

FHN + Black Wall Street Annapolis + Newtowne 20 and Woodside Gardens Kids

April 28, 2018

Elizamae Robinson Community Center at Newtowne 20, Annapolis, MD

The MLK Mural Project kicked off a series of collaborative art projects created throughout underserved communities in Annapolis. Located inside the Elizamae Robinson Community Center in Newtowne 20, the MLK mural was a collaboration between youth from the Black Wall Street Annapolis program, Newtowne 20 and Woodside Gardens. The young artists were encouraged to incorporate text into the mural, some of which represents “shout-outs,” or “call and response,” recognizing neighborhoods and programs involved, while other text are quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
