Description: In 2017, the students at Fernwood Elementary on the far South Side chose to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Barack Obama alongside inspiring wording that decorates columns throughout the school's main hallway. Later, we worked with students to extend the mural and pay tribute to other important African American influences; Frederick Douglas, Angela Davis, Malcolm X, and The Black Panther Party.
