CLEVELAND (WJW)– Artists worked with the city of Cleveland to paint a large Black Lives Matter mural across on a street on the east side last week. It’s located on East 93rd Street between Bessemer and Heath avenues.
Before East 93rd Street reopens to traffic, the Greater Whitestone Church held a prayer service.
Music filled the air on the sunny Sunday evening while others took pictures of the mural. Speakers called for racial and social justice.
“Enough is enough. Black lives matter. We are not saying that other lives don’t matter, we’re merely saying that all lives can’t matter until black lives matter,” one man said.
The city temporarily closed the street because of increase pedestrian traffic to see the collaboration from R.A.K.E. and Graffiti HeArt. Each letter features the design of a different local artist or organization.
