The entire mural is based on the tenents of the #SayHerName movement – demand the visibilty of Black Women. The back of the house is dedicated to Sandra Bland. She always spoke from the heart and spoke of love and liberation. This quote, and this quote alone, fills the entire back wall of the home and can be seen from two blocks away at the playground of Prescott Elementary School. Everyone can feel joy from Sandra’s words, most specifically children.
WOMP was granted non-profit status in late 2021 after 18 months of being fiscally sponsored by Alena Museum, a neighboring nonprofit with the mission of providing critical safe spaces for the African Diaspora to express and cultivate their cultural identity in the face of gentrification.
We are so grateful to Alena and so exicted for this next chapter as we strive to become a leading orgnazation in the field of community service, public history and public art.
