Roanoke artists paint ‘End Racism Now’ on street outside of Municipal Building
Dozens of artists painted the message “End Racism Now” on the 200 block of Campbell Avenue, which is overlooked by the historic Municipal Building. The mural, which was planned by Roanoke’s Urban Arts Project, received approval from city leaders before artists started painting. “We are all working together to end racism now,” said Eboni Harrington of the Urban Arts Project. “In art, it’s up to you,” said Aly Jones of the Urban Arts Project. After the phrase, artists painted several names of people killed by police violence.
