Voyage to Soulsville
1161 Angelina St.
In 1986, John Fisher transformed the south wall of the George Washington Carver Branch library into Soulsville. This vibrant mural “expresses a voyage through the discovery of black identity—depicting a community upon a vessel that embraces the African diaspora from pre-Columbian to present times,” according to the library. A landmark for some, a reminder of our past to others, this mural is nevertheless a stalwart in the east Austin street art scene.
