On the morning of Tuesday, June 9, 2020, Charlotteans woke up to a bold new mural being painted on a prominent stretch of South Tryon Street that read "Black Lives Matter." Inspired by similar murals in Washington, DC and Raleigh, a group of Charlotte artists and organizers came together within a matter of hours to create their own homage to the movement.
What makes Charlotte's mural unique, however, is that each letter is designed and painted by a different artist. The result is stunning.
On today's episode of the Biscuit CLT Podcast, producer Andy Goh takes you on the ground to talk to the artists and organizers who made the mural happen.
