THE COMMUNITY WANTS ITS MURAL BACK!
SATURDAY 11/18 12:00 – 2:00 pm
GUILD THEATER 35th & Broadway
A couple weeks ago, a beautiful mural commemorating Black community members who were killed by local law enforcement showed up on the side of The Guild Theater in Oak Park, a community that is rapidly erasing Black history and Black culture through gentrification.
The neighborhood and family members of those who were killed were quick to express praise and gratitude for the mural.
However, just days later the mural was scrubbed down and all that remains are red blotches.
