Eastern Michigan unveiling mural depicting campus diversity

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — A mural depicting diversity at Eastern Michigan University and the surrounding community is being unveiled on the school’s campus today.

Students and staff are expected to gather this afternoon in the McKenny Hall Student Lounge to view the Unity Mural.

Political science major Steve Kwasny organized efforts after racist graffiti was left on some buildings on the Ypsilanti campus. Graphic design student Scott Schlueter used ideas received by project organizers to create the project.

More than 200 people participated in the Feb. 11 painting of the mural.
