Brooklyn Legacy

Artist: Abel Jackson

Category Uptown Interactive


Beautifully executed realistic portraits of three prominent African-American leaders of historic Charlotte float above tightly rendered depictions of the buildings behind this mural from artist Abel Jackson. The artist pays homage to the past while connecting to the future. Inspired by viewing the historic stained glass panels in the Grace A.M.E. Zion Church, Jackson created abstract, colorful designs on the side of the mural.
