At the end of June the city decided to have “Black lives do matter” and “End racism now” around the market house. The market house was used to buy and sell slaves so it was a perfect place for the mural. It’s the kind of “fuck you” I can really get behind. About a mont or so ago white out warning the city removed the words and told everyone that it was never meant to be permanent. Last week the city council voted to reinstall the mural. I went down there today to photograph the reinstatement.
