#Dare To Dissent

Dare Coulter

Category: Mural

The North Carolina ACLU in partnership with the Raleigh Murals Project commissioned artist Dare Coulter to create a mural that pays tribute to the First Amendment and to the courageous individuals who exercised their right to protest throughout history, often in the face of violence. Dare brought this 32 foot by 23 foot mural to life after 10 days of painting. The mural features iconic imagery from some of the most famous protests in history including the 1968 Olympic Black Power Salute by American Olympians Tommie Smith and John Carlos, the 1965 Selma to Montgomery March also known as "Bloody Sunday", the 1969 Stonewall Riots, the 1968 Memphis Sanitation Workers’ Strike also known as the “I Am A Man March" and Dolores Huerta, a civil rights leader, labor activist, and co-founder of United Farm Workers, which advocated for the social and economic rights of farm workers and Hispanic Americans.
