BALTIMORE — The Banneker Douglas Museum has launched its Black Vote Mural Project.

The project highlights milestones and black leaders in the history of movements for the right to vote with sixteen murals.

It takes visitors through a journey from the 14th Amendment to present day.

"I hope that this inspires people to vote first and foremost, but also understand the different ways for change,” said Tomora Wright, Curator of Black Vote Mural Project. “Art is a way to inspire change as is voting and really linking those together and discussing how that works hand in hand. Artists have been known to be activists."

The exhibition runs through December 20.
