Located at the corner of 9th and Commerce Streets, this mural was painted in memory of Bev Cosby, an influential minister and advocate for social change in the 1950’s and ‘60’s. This mural is 25 feet by 50 feet and was painted in 10 days in 2004 by artist Michael Cooper. The hands in the picture were based on the hands of people who were close to Reverend Cosby, serving as a reminder to all onlookers of what’s possible when people work together.
