Fruitvale Station – in theaters July 12 – is undoubtedly among the most-talked about films of the summer.
Directed by Rynan Coogler, Fruitvale Station tells the tragic story of Oscar Grant, who was shot and killed by a BART police officer in Oakland, CA. His death was wisely scene as a result of police brutality and racism, sparking outrage and protests nationwide.
In conjunction with the film, a social justice campaign has been launched in the name of Oscar Grant and his family.
To commemorate and remind us all of the tragic story of Oscar Grant and to build on the love and humanity that his family and people across the globe have pushed to the forefront of this conversation, three murals will be created by famed street artists LNY, Ron English, Eddie Colla + Lydia Emily with one in San Francisco, Williamsburg, NY, and Silver Lake, Los Angeles. Events in each city will premiere the art live on this website. Here we will document the final murals, the artists, the process and much more. Stay tuned to this website or Fruitvale Station’s social pages for more.
