Similar to the mural painted outside of the White House in Washington, D.C., Colorado State University's Fort Collins campus now has a sidewalk that reads 'Black Lives Matter' in bold yellow capital letters. 

Ray Black, a Department of Ethnic Studies Assistant Professor, told the university that the mural is to help students understand the meaning of the Black Lives Matter movement.

'People think it’s not peaceful, and it is peaceful, from the kneeling of athletes to people putting their hands up and saying, ‘Don’t shoot,' Black explained. Via CSU SOURCE 

The mural was painted by Ram faculty, staff and students outside of the Visual Art Building as an installation in the 'Engaged Art Walk.'
