It's a unique piece of art that showcases Kansas City's ethnic diversity. The Wall of Respect started as an outdoor mural and was first created in 1967 by a group of Chicago artists from the Organization of Black American Culture. The Wall no longer exists having burnt with the building it was painted on. However, historic photos of the iconic wall were powerful enough to inspire a project in Kansas City that has engaged more than 150 people of all ages and ethnicities from every area of the metro area. We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek!
