A striking new mural has gone up on the side of Carly’s Bistro on Roosevelt Row in commemoration of Black History Month. The Black History Matters mural depicts, from left to right, Huey P. Newton, Malcolm X and Stokely Carmichael. It is part of the Black History Month Mural Project organized by Gizette Knight and Reality Dreams. As part of the project, 28 murals, each depicting three figures from black history, are being painted throughout Phoenix during the month of February.
