Memphis TV station WMCA talked with Marti Tippens Murphy, Memphis Facing History director, and Lauren Kennedy, Urban Art Commission member, about the expectations and excitement surrounding the Memphis Mural Project. Some Memphians, such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Ida B. Wells, are well known from history, but there are many more who will recognized through the Mural.
Marti Tippens Murphy looks forward to the education the mural will bring to the people and visitors of Memphis. “We really hope that we uncover some stories that people aren’t quite as familiar with.”
