Representing Voices That Are Not Your Own

In this clip, a visitor to the Northwest African American Museum on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2024 talks about representing diverse voices in mural art. They talk about their struggles in representing communities outside of their own.

How I’m approaching it, how I’m approach all my murals is whether it’s agreed upon or not, I make sure I create something that has room for every voice that wants to be on there.
