Photographer's Note

This is the mural across the Lorraine Motel. Its official title is Memphis Upstanders Mural. It was commissioned by Facing History and Ourselves as well as UrbanArt Commission, created by Cedar Nordbye and Nelson Gutierrez.

The mural honors community-nominated Upstanders, extraordinary Memphians who embraced the challenge to speak out, stand up for others, and make decisions that have helped to create a more inclusive, just, and compassionate Memphis. The fourteen Memphis Upstanders included in the mural are Bishop Carroll Dozier, Nina Katz, Maxine and Vasco Smith, Yellow Fever Upstanders, Reverend Frank McRae, Reverend Samuel "Billy" Kyles, Lucy Tibbs, John T. Fisher II, Charl Ormond Williams, Ida B. Wells, T.O. Jones, Dr. Sheldon Korones, and Rabbi James A. Wax.

The workshop photo shows the facade of the National Civil Rights Museum right across this mural and the curious “Lorraine Hotel” sign on the corner.
