This 225-page, hard cover book documents many of the murals created during the 2020 protests in Columbus and features writings by Columbus-based Black creatives on the continuing fight for social justice.
The book is intended to serve as a time capsule and interactive experience that showcases the pain and struggle of the events of summer 2020, but also the beauty of the art, all while telling Columbus' story and continuing the conversation and pushing for action in our city.
