Future History Now  (FHN), in partnership with Banneker-Douglass Museum (BDM) and the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture  (MCAAHC), collaborated with local youth on a 7000-square foot ground mural project depicting a portrait of Breonna Taylor and Black Lives Matter in Chambers Park in Annapolis.

The Banneker Douglas Museum provided supplies, promotional assistance, volunteers and historical documentation of the mural’s creation.

The mural is intended to be visible from space through satellite imagery as a form of peaceful, artistic means to

encourage an end to systemic racism.

The goal of the effort is for future leaders to experience this pivotal moment in history in an active and positive way through lasting art. 

This community project was made possible by Greater Parole Community

Association, Chambers Park, City Of Annapolis, Mayor Gavin Buckley,

Annapolis Recs and Park Department, and generous community donations.
