In the Summer of '67 on the Southside of Chicago, a collective of black artists decided to create the first "street art" project in American history.

Searching for a public place in which to celebrate their cultural heroes, the eclectic group of painters, photographers, musicians, and poets discovered a large wall next to a TV repair shop that they decided to make their blank canvas. For the next several weeks, in a neighborhood plagued by gang violence and in a time of explosive racial tension, the group set about turning their vision into art.

One person stood in their way -- the mayor of Chicago.
