Upstanders Mural - Facing History and Ourselves

Upstanders Mural - Facing History and Ourselves

These extraordinary Memphians embraced the challenge to speak out, stand up for others, and make decisions that have helped to create a more inclusive, just, and compassionate Memphis. Located at 115 Huling Avenue (near the National Civil Rights Musuem), this mual was created by artists: Nelson Gutierrez, a Bogota, Columbia native who now works out of Memphis, and Cedar Nordbye, an associate professor at the University of Memphis and founder of the Memphis Mural Brigade.

The mural was a collaborated effort between the UrbanArt Commission, National Civil Rights Museum and Downtown Memphis Commission.
