Satellite Rendering of the Breonna Taylor/Black Lives Matter Ground Mural

Large scale mural project honoring the life of Breonna Taylor to bring awareness of the Black Lives Matter Civil Rights Movement to end Police Brutality and Systemic Racism

WHAT:

Future History Now (FHN) in partnership with Banneker-Douglass Museum and The Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture are collaborating with local youth on a 7000-square foot ground mural project depicting a portrait of Breonna Taylor and Black Lives Matter. It is intended to be visible from space through satellite imagery. This effort is not intended to be a performative distraction from real policy changes, but rather a form of using peaceful and artistic means to express distress, giving a voice to those who need to be heard and to have their humanity recognized. Our goal is for future leaders to experience this pivotal moment in history in an active and positive way.

This community project is made possible by the generous donations of many individuals, The Greater Parole Community Association, Chambers Park, The City Of Annapolis, Mayor Gavin Buckley, and Annapolis Rec and Parks Department.
