This mural was creating in collaboration with young boxers from the Selma Youth Development Center (SYDC) in Selma, Alabama. It spans one wall of an under-funded boxing facility located in an old elementary school. It was designed by identifying boxing heroes and role models, while excluding those who did not live up to the ideals of the SYDC.
The boxers are proud of their work and the image of a child looking up to his role models inspires new members of the SYDC boxing community. While their facilites are only adequate, the presence of a mural is said to enhance their esteem of the gym.
