How long have we been waiting for the Roots mural? It seems like forever ago that we started pining for Philly’s biggest hometown hip-hop stars to be enshrined on some wall, somewhere. Well, it’s finally happening, and the wall is at 512 S. Broad Street, on the side of the World Communications Charter School. Seems like a more fitting idea than Sixth and South, which was pitched some time ago.
The mural project hasn’t been just about making wall art. There has also been a lecture series for kids and citywide paint days. Rest assured a lot of those kids will be at the dedication, as will the Roots, obviously, who will entertain.
WHAT: Roots Mural dedication
WHEN: May 31, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
WHERE: 512 S. Broad Street, World Communications Charter School, (South Street entrance)
