A shining example of creativity and innovation, Creative Girls Rock has gifted us with an amazing mural located at John Early Middle School. This mural has not only been painted to show the milestones these Nashville figures have reached, but as a celebration of Black excellence and originality and how it has shaped and influenced Music City.

Painted by Elisheba “Queen Bee” Mrozik, a member of CGR, this mural shows four different Black Nashville figures that have all been essential to the Black community’s circumstances and experiences. Furthest left on the mural is Marvin Moore Williams, the first child to desegregate Metro Nashville Public Schools, and next to his depiction is the late Nathaniel Harris, the owner of Woodcuts Gallery & Framing. Next to Harris is the famous TSU Tigerbelle and Olympic athlete Wilma Rudolph, and furthest right is the General Manager of Fisk University’s JAZZY 88 WFSK, Sharon Kay.

At the unveiling of the mural at John Early, Williams showed up in-person in commemoration of the artwork. Inspiring ingenuity and productivity in young girls, Creative Girls Rock has stayed as a positive light in the Nashville community.
