The purpose of the project is to bring people together to tell a community narrative of the history of African Americans in and around E. 38th Street (An historic African American cultural corridor) through the creation of a community designed mural at a significant location along the E. 38th Street Corridor in South Minneapolis. The vision for this mural was born from these and other conversations BNO had with community members. The vision for this mural is both a reflection of the old community in which people are still mourning, and the new community in which they hope for. Ironically, the future of east 38th street looks very similar to its former self.
