Mural Description: Our Mural theme is centered on De Colores, a popular traditional Spanish-language folk song widely recognized among the Latino and Spanish speaking cultures. De Colores is a song that celebrates all of life's creation, from the joyful to the sorrowful, and evokes the beauty of a diverse world. This message is delivered in the imagery of Chicano and Mexican-American civil rights activists which includes Dolores Huerta and César Chavez, of the 1960s and '70s, to demonstrate that the fight for equity and justice is an ongoing journey. From these activists, we can draw the line to the struggles of 2020, with the Black Lives Matter movement and the magnified inequities that communities of color are facing in the midst of a global pandemic.
