On Aug. 11, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders students from both Fannie Lou Hamer Middle School and P.S. 66 — where Phipps Neighborhoods hosts Summer Rising and 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 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.”
