This mural has become one of the most iconic in the city. This piece depicts modern day youths and their imitated postures of historical figures. Except for one - the young girl at the top with the pink blouse. She stands along with no figure to mirror. She is Tameka Jones and was a student at the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts. With grace and composure, she stands looking out past the mural in contemplation towards the streets below.
