BALTIMORE (WJZ) — There’s a new piece of art in downtown Baltimore.

People spent days painting the message “Black Lives Matter” on East Fayette Street.

Organizers hosted an unveiling event on Saturday to showcase the new mural.

Leaders say this is not just a piece of art or a symbol, it’s about a mission.

“We can tear down all the statues that we want to, but until we change that… statues in our state capitols, in our city halls… nothing will change,” Delegate Nick Mosby said.

Similar murals have been painted near Patterson Park and on North Charles Street.

    nick mosby is not telling you that if you continue to elect the same leadership as you have for the past 50 years nothing will change, its called insanity when you do that.
