COMMUNITY GAME CHANGERS

Initiated by Settles in 2017, the Community Game Changers series of wall murals pay tribute to the iconic minds and personalities that have helped shape and advance the Black community on the areas of education, politics and finance. Permanently on display at Slade’s Bar & Grill, The Community Game Changers murals serve as reminder to our past and an inspiration to our future.
