Hollywood All Black Lives Matter Shrunken Mural – Streetsblog Los Angeles



In June, volunteers painted a mural that read “ALL BLACK LIFE IS IMPORTANT” on Hollywood Boulevard, immediately west of Highland Avenue. The “everything” and the colors chosen affirm the life of black transgender, non-binary and LGBTQ + communities.

The mural was originally three lanes high, and was to be removed at the end of the All Black Lives Matter March. The city temporarily preserved the mural by blocking two traffic lanes.

Then, at the request of city council member Mitch O’Farrell, the city decided to preserve the mural for posterity. Well, sort of. Apparently three lanes of traffic are a bit too much to spend on such a mural, so the city has narrowed it down to a single middle lane. The city would not want any kind of commemoration to prevent drivers from traveling across the city.

The shrinkage seems symbolic of how the city and city council in general, and Mitch O’Farrell in particular, too often have half-lost city projects, especially involving protections for vulnerable voters. O’Farrell represents one of the most progressive regions in the country politically. Yet he is more likely to be heard mouth-by-mouthed about progressive politics while perpetuating an unjust status quo.

O’Farrell claims to protect tenants while decisive vote against the protections of tenants under COVID-19. He urged the state to protect street vendors while pushing vendors out of park space in his neighborhood. He supported temporaryhousing with ongoing support services, but doubledinhuman sweeps of its non-housed voters, in particular at Echo Park. On Temple Street, he implemented very modest security improvements, while omit the proven safety of a lane reduction.

Especially in light of the recent attack on three transgender women (very near the site of the street mural) and continued police brutality towards communities of color, O’Farrell and the city must move beyond the most superficial commemorations and take real action to ensure that all lives black people – including transgender people – are truly protected and raised.
