Members of West Baltimore’s Union Baptist Church and the community gathered at the church to unveil the community mural project dedicated to our hometown hero. The mural of beloved late Congressman Elijah Cummings was unveiled in a ceremony on Oct. 17, the day that marked once year since his passing. 

The colorful and inspiring artwork sends a powerful message with the words “Never let anyone define you,” a saying he often used, written next to Baltimore’s champion Cong. Elijah Cummings.
