Bright & Early: Wash, Rinse, Repeat Edition

Good morning, Nashville. The Jefferson Street Freedom Riders mural will be getting yet another coat of paint just two weeks after being repainted to cover up where vandals had whited out all of the black faces. This time around, which is actually the third time someone has defaced the mural since it was finished on May 14th, the painting was found to be covered in a layer of graffiti. Though the vandalism and cleanups are getting tiresome and expensive, the neighborhood insists they’ll be repainting it. The mural was originally created by local artists and high school students to celebrate the rich civil rights history of the Jefferson Street neighborhood.
