CSX recently invited the entire community in Birmingham, Alabama to help create a mosaic mural commemorating the historic 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement as part of Empowerment Week. During the city's week-long "50 Years Forward" observance, residents and visitors to Birmingham pitched in to paint 1,800 plywood tiles that were pieced together to form the mural, entitled "Mural For All."
Tori Kaplan, AVP Corporate Social Responsibility, explained, "CSX partnered with Birmingham on the 50 Years Forward observance both as a show of support for the effort to commemorate this local piece of history, and also to help provide an outlet through which people of all backgrounds could be hands-on in saluting progress and promoting right results, the right way."
The finished mural, stands 22-feet tall and 36-feet wide, and was unveiled during a commemorative celebration in the city's well-known Railroad Park where the mural currently resides.
