A Change in the Bronx II

I came across this mural, also in the Bronx.

I love murals, I think it tells the viewer a little something about the neighborhood and depending on the subject, it tells the viewer something about the history of the neighborhood.

The artist painted the mural on Martin Luther King, Jr. day. He reminds the reader of the past and the dreams and hopes that those who came before us, created for themselves and their children.

The mural was put up on the wall in response to President Obama’s election. As soon as he won office, the artist repainted what was previously there.

Before this mural, there was another one telling people in a “propagandic” way, who to vote for.

Notice how there is not a slight of graffiti on the wall.
