Who’s On The Wall
August 24, 2021 - August 28, 2021
So many interesting and important personalities have come out of Birmingham but none more so than the individuals whose likenesses adorn the exterior wall of the Firehouse Community Arts Center located in Avondale. Sun Ra, the Rev Fred Shuttlesworth, Angela Davis, and Spider Martin have, in their own distinct ways, changed the course of Birmingham’s tumultuous story. Firehouse Community Arts Center and BCRI presented a series of public, outside events at the Center this year that focused on and celebrated the life of each person depicted. Each month, between April and August, invited speakers discussed the significance of these former Birmingham residents and their relevance to the history of the city.
