Photographer's Note

Hello all, this mural is painted on the side of a building very close to Peoples Park in Berkeley. Luckily the man with the backpack was walking by just as I took my photo.I don't know any history of the painting of it but I find it interesting nonetheless. So much history from the 1960's and the Civil Rights movement of the times.
The park,which is rather small, was slated to be bulldoved as it was a parking lot in the 50's, and is owned by the University of Berkeley. For more history see this site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People%27s_Park_%28Berkeley%29
Today the park has a large homeless population in it.
