Description

"All Black Lives Matter" is painted in black on the pavement. Around the words is a red border. The selection of the colors, according to Abounding Prosperity, was intentional. Red represents the blood of life, while black symbolizes progressiveness and strength. Lastly, yellow stands for optimism and growth.

In partnership with Abounding Prosperity, Inc., an organization founded to address social and health disparities taking a toll on Black men and their families in Dallas County, private funding for the project was secured over the course of the past several years. What started in June 2020 came to life less than two years later.
