About the Mural

Originally created in 2005, the Ocala Black History Mural located on Silver Springs Blvd. (State Road 40) was initially inspired by a Summer Camp Program at the Hampton Campus of the Central Florida Community College and facilitated by the staff and artists of the Brick City Center for the arts. This program was aimed at community youth and used the inspiration of the art of Jacob Lawrence. The Mural was restored as part of the 2019 Levitt Amp Ocala Concert Series.
