Austin Paints "Black Austin Matters" On Congress Avenue

The words "Black Austin Matters" were painted in big bright yellow letters on Congress Avenue in Austin today.

Crews blocked off Congress between 6th and 9th streets in downtown Austin to paint the words.

The Austin Transportation Department said, "Congress Avenue is a canvas of our city. From marathons to marches, stories are made here. Some don’t have the chance to tell their stories so this morning we gave them the canvas."

The Austin Justice Coalition and Capitol View Arts worked with the city of Austin and the city's transportation department on the project.
