Here's a look at Black Lives Matter murals across the U.S.

Since Washington, D.C. painted “Black Lives Matter” across 16th St. on June 5, cities around the country followed with their own murals. It’s a public art movement unrivaled in recent street art history. Here’s a look at murals from around the U.S.:

Akron, Ohio

Asheville, North Carolina

#blacklivesmatter | An amazing group of artists came together to paint a block-wide mural in the center of uptown Charlotte. Each artist was assigned a letter over the weekend and quickly sketched up their own piece of the puzzle. They put a lot of work into their art today, so swipe to see each artist and go follow and support them. | If you’d like to reshare, please credit me 📸@maleekloyd ✌🏽

Witnessing the events unfold in the Twin cities over the past two weeks has been eye opening. From tragedy to the beautiful coming together of our communities. The fight for equality is never over, we will continue to bring our community closer. I’m so proud of all of my friends and family that stepped up to the plate and showed up. It’s beautiful to see the outpour of support in our twin cities.
