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.

Mural Arts Philadelphia is the nation’s largest public art program, dedicated to the belief that art ignites change.
