Philadelphia's Wall of Peace - With Kids

"Neighborhood Children at Peace Wall by Jane Golden and Peter Pagast. Photo by Jack Ramsdale."

The Peace Wall in Philadelphia created in 1997. Muralarts.org says:

" After racial violence in the Grays Ferry neighborhood made national headlines, Jane Golden and community organizers went door-to-door pitching a mural.  Cynics sneered, but other residents chose this design, then lined up to have their hands photographed.  The diverse, yet converging hands symbolize the community’s commitment to ending racial division."
