The colorful mural gracing the front of Oakland High School was created by students in 2009 and features inspirational leaders, including the Dalai Lama, Malcolm X, Frida Kahlo. The title, “Beautiful Struggle” comes from a speech by Martin Luther King.
“We must move past indecision to action. Now let us begin. Now let us rededicate ourselves to the long and bitter, but beautiful struggle for a new world. This is the calling of the sons of God, and our brothers wait eagerly for our response.”
