Unity Wall

Lake Worth Beach Unity Wall Renewal
Posted on 01/20/2021
The Unity wall got off to a great start. Several artists and volunteers met this past Saturday, January 16, and began painting the 1100 square foot of wall off of 12th Ave and Wingfield Street.

Historically, the wall separated the White and Black neighborhoods during the Jim Crowe era in Lake Worth. A reminder of segregation, the neighborhood decided that it was important to not tear down the wall, but instead beautify it and make it a symbol of Untiy, by creating murals depicting that message.

We had about 18 LWHS students on Saturday who showed up and volunteered to paint. Thanks for all who helped spread the word and participated.

There is still more work to be done and Volunteers and artists still needed during the weekend of January 23rd.  Contact Brent Bludworth via email if interested in volunteering time and talent.
