About the mural:
At the height of Anti-Asian violence and the ongoing movement for Black liberation, Frisco Rise is a mural rooted in Black and Asian solidarity during San Francisco’s redevelopment era (1948 – 1973) and how these communities are staying resilient while still fighting current forms of redevelopment, known today as gentrification. It is a tribute piece to our ancestors who threw down for our communities in solidarity with one another and hopes to inspire upcoming generations to do the same.
