Today and for the next four weeks, our MLK billboard looks down on the newly erected Confederate memorial in Orange, Texas.
It was designed by an Orange native, Ashley Evans (see below).
We were able to raise the billboard thanks to the support of concerned citizens who donated to our GoFundMe campaign. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible.
Happy Martin Luther King Day!
