Black Art Matters PHOTOG RAPHY B Y HILARY WALK ER PHOTOG RAPHY
As Durhamâ€™s peaceful protests took to the streets in late May and early June, downtown storefronts that had been boarded up with plywood were transformed by more than 20 local Black artists into murals and messages of hope, solidarity and resistance. Continue to support these artists and others by donating to NorthStar Church of the Artsâ€™ Durham Artist Relief Fund at northstardurham.com/artistrelief.
