Black power

Notes: From 67 Sueños: “This mural was painted in honor of the past and present leaders who fought selflessly for equality and who dared to image a better world without violence, wars, and hatred.  This mural, then, becomes a historical reservoir for the future generations so that they may never forget the ancestors who dared to challenge the status quo so that we could experience a better tomorrow.  We honor the legacies of Palestine Freedom Fighters, Black Panthers, Farm Worker’s movement, Civil Rights movement, Women’s rights movement, Chicano movement, and so much more through this mural. We honor the diversity of communities because we want to uplift the power of International solidarity and cross-racial unity.  We hope you take an opportunity to visit and too enjoy the rich legacies and powerful hxstories reflected on this mural.”
