Local Artists Install Black Lives Matter Street Mural In Uptown Charlotte
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A group of local Charlotte artists installed a Black Lives Matter street mural in uptown Charlotte Tuesday.

Each individual artist has designed a letter in the message that is located on Tryon Street, between Third and Fourth streets.
