Murals In Durham

Updated on October 18, 2015

Marc has worked in Radio for years, his folks having started a jazz station when he was a teen and he has been on WMUR, WNCU, and now WCOM

Had the pleasure of going downtown Durham and taking part in a dedication to a new Public Arts Mural that is dedicated to Durham's Civil Right's history and which features prominently one of my mentors, Howard Fuller. Howard Fuller has been an activist both in Civil Rights, both here in Durham and in Milwaukee, and also a staunch advocate lately for Charter schools....

But he is not the only historic thing featured in the mural, which also features sit-ins and other protests that took place in the sixties and let's folks know a lot of very important history. from the Bull City.. I am glad to say that I know the folks involved with this work, and I am quite proud of them and what they have done.

Do you have a favorite piece of Public Art in your town. If so, what is it and what does it commemorate...Is it featured prominently or just moderately in your town's publicity and material.

Public Art has such an important part of our cultural and artistic landscape in my opinion...
