Busboys and Poets Books will be featured at the entrance.

Andy Shallal’s newest mural pays homage to fearless and powerful global women leaders with an emphasis on Angela Davis’s activist and scholarly contributions to greater freedoms and possibilities. Iconic women in the mural include Gwendolyn Brooks, Alice Walker, Frida Kahlo, Audre Lorde, Jeanette Rankin, Sonia Sanchez and Zora Neale Hurston.
