Image of Murals for Justice: Newark, “Abolish White Supremacy”
On Saturday, June 27th 2021, the words “ABOLISH WHITE SUPREMACY” were painted in bright yellow 25ft high letters on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard between the Essex County Historic Courthouse and Veterans’ Courthouse. On Halsey Street, east of the Rutgers campus, the words “ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER” takes up another city block.
These powerful statements launched the City of Newark’s social justice public art initiative in collaboration with the Arts, Culture and Media Graphic Design Program at Rutgers University-Newark (ACM-GD), many community partners, and several well-known city muralists and organizers.
