Description

"We Can'tBreathe" is painted on the pavement in black. At the end of the phrase, there is a Black Power Fist. Underneath, "Chestertown Unites Against Racism" is painted in green.

Wanda Boyer, a member of the Social Action Committee for Racial Justice; Maria Wood, executive director of River Arts; and Arlene Lee, a member of the Social Action Committee for Racial Justice, came up with the idea of painting the murals in June. They assembled support through community outreach, wrote the proposal for the murals, and did the legal research required to get them approved by the Town Council.
