The Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery (MAAHMG) is bringing together amazing artists to paint "Black Lives Matter" on the street on Plymouth Avenue in support of the movement for racial justice sparked by the killing of George Floyd.

Artists participating in the painting of the mural include Melodee Strong, Sean Philips, Christopher Harrison, Kenneth Caldwell, Broderick Poole, Beverly Tipton Hammond, Drew Hammond, Lissa Karpeh, Brittany Moore and Timi Bliss. Stay tuned for more artists! Each artist will create their own unique design on a letter. The event will be videotaped by Georgia Fort.

The mural will be painted on the street on Plymouth Avenue North between Penn and Newton Avenues. This is a historic public art event to support the fight against systemic racism and police brutality against Black people in this country. The public is invited to come out and support, watch and celebrate Black lives. Please wear masks to stop the spread of COVID-19.
