On Wednesday, August 11, 2021, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students from both Fannie Lou Hamer Middle School and P.S. 66–where Phipps Neighborhoods hosts Summer Rising & after school programs—unveiled a new mural in the schools’ shared play yard. The mural was co-painted and co-designed by the two schools’ students.

The students worked diligently through July and August to complete the mural, working alongside Savannah Zambrano, a teaching artist from Thrive Collective, to create an image inspired by the power of youth, Bronx activists, and Fannie Lou Hamer’s guiding words, “nobody’s free until everybody’s free.”
