Artists Felix St. Fort and Gabe Tiberino joined forces in a mural
honoring the Cecil B. Moore Freedom Fighters.
St. Fort and Tiberino used a mixture of portraits and graphic
elements, such as Adinkra symbols, to create a unique mural. Adinkra
symbols represent different concepts or ideas and originate from West
Africa, specifically a region that is now called Ghana. The Freedom
Fighters determined 10 Adinkra symbols that reflect the values and
lessons of their civil rights work in North Philadelphia: Knowledge,
Unity, Perseverance, Power of Love, Fortitude, Service, Democracy,
Justice, Excellence, and Encouragement. Each mural kit has one symbol
and all 10 Adinkras featured in the mural.
