Black Girls United (BGU) is an organization formed with the purpose of uplifting, empowering and inspiring the young women of Lincoln High School. In support of Black Lives Matter and to show respect and gratitude, the group decided to paint a mural to honor Breonna Taylor, the young African American woman murdered in her home by police in Kentucky earlier this year while serving a wrongful search warrant.
The organization says Black Girls United believe Black women have been overlooked for far too long. Breonna’s death serves as a reminder of the fact that racial equality has yet to be achieved. The mural serves as a conversation starter and solemn reminder that the lives of Black people matter. The mural is located at 4512 Market street, San Diego, CA 92102.
