Ridge on the Rise Mural

This storytelling mural includes Cecil B. Moore, people protesting at Girard College, and the Pearl Theatre where jazz greats like John Coltrane performed. In the mural, the art deco facade of the long gone theatre contrasts with the forbidding ten-foot stone wall that still encloses the grounds of Girard College, location of the landmark civil rights struggle.
