Muralist Muhammad Yungai (@artofyungai) has depicted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in three murals across Atlanta, Georgia. “Just seeing his face is a prompt to have courage in the face of adversity,” Muhammad says.
A former art teacher, Muhammad believes that having depictions of Dr. King in schools is especially important. “I want children to feel empowered,” he adds. “Each painting, sculpture or photo of him is a reminder of who we all can be, and what we can achieve together.” Spend #MLKDay celebrating Atlanta’s civil rights legacy with a tour of its inspiring murals, today on our story.
