In 1967, a gigantic mural depicting pivotal black figures and leaders appeared on the side of a building on the South Side of Chicago, quickly earning the name “the Wall of Respect.” The vivid painting only lasted a few years, but its impact has continued to reverberate throughout the years. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the Block Museum examines how the guerilla work helped inspire similar art in Chicago and beyond.
