Music mural ribbon-cutting!

On a beautiful blue Sunday afternoon, Wilson cut the ribbon at the dedication of the African-American Music Trails mural downtown. Bill Myers and Sam Lathan were on hand to receive their flowers, Gloria Burks‘ descendants stood in her stead, and the Sallie B. Howard School Chorus performed for an appreciative crowd.

Thanks to Michelle Myers Young for sharing the video clip!

Downtown mural honors music legacy.

Shout to out to Freeman Round House and African-American Museum, Wilson Arts, and artist Max Dowdle of N.C. Public Art for this celebration of Wilson’s beloved African American Music Trail icons — William E. Myers, the late Sallie B. Howard, the late Gloria Burks, and Samuel C. Lathan

(Next — a Sam Vick mural?!?)
