Chicago's First Juneteenth Mural

CHICAGO - A Chicago artist commissioned by Absolute Equality to create a mural to celebrate Juneteenth gave us a sneak peek of his work Wednesday Artist Rahmaan Barnes, aka Rahmaan Statik, grew up on the South Side of Chicago surrounded by urban art and public murals. He quickly became involved with the sub-culture of street art and has created over 400 murals. "I think the importance of participating in this initiative is setting a new standard for what we know as Black culture, Black history. Therefore, by celebrating Juneteenth nationwide, through public art and creating landmarks to symbolize that,"Barnes said. Barnes' latest mural, Absolute Equality, to celebrate Juneteenth is located in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
