Art is a way for someone to express their feelings, opinions, and view point on any topic. The murals at the Church of the Advocate about the Civil Rights Movement showed a perspective that we cannot see through reading. The murals showed very raw emotions and experiences that black people dealt with through this time. The variance of colors and different expressions on faces showed the hard emotions that people were feeling. Having a place to show the way people had felt during this time and the different experiences they had gone through. Through the murals, the artists had the ability to express anything they wanted without someone being able to contradict their viewpoint because it is up for interpretation. One of the murals that I thought spoke a strong message was the one with chains coming out of the man’s mouth. I think that this shows the constraints that people faced through the Civil Rights movement as well as through time until today.
