Booker

Since the Off the Wall project is now finished, I’ll be posting on them fairly frequently over the next two to three weeks to wrap up my own series on it. This mural is by Omari Booker, who just happens to be a graduate of Tennessee State University’s Art Department (being a TSU History prof, I’m more than happy to point to the success of a TSU grad). He explains on his Instagram page that the image is of himself and his older sister when they were kids. Damali Ayana Booker passed away in 2002, and Omari sees this mural as a memorial to her. The mural was sponsored by the Buckingham Foundation.

Located at 3020 Charlotte Avenue. This mural actually faces 28th/31st Avenue North. Your best bet for parking is perhaps across the street at Cross Fit Nashville or street parking on 31st Avenue north of Charlotte.
