Wall of Respect

The Wall of Respect is a collaborative effort with artists such as photographers and painters coming together to create a mural of leaders and stars within the black community. From 1967-1971 it was located on 43rd street and Langley Avenue in Chicago’s south side area. The wall became a hub for people looking to share poetry, music, public performances and readings as well. During this time inequality was rampant, so these artists are honored here for trying to make a difference through their forms of expression.
