Strawberry Mansion: Five Murals That Tell the Community’s Story

Father Paul Washington was a priest at the Church of the Advocates, located near Temple University. He was a social activist and religious leader. This mural overlooks a playground at Ridge Avenue and Cumberland Drive.

This mural located on 3015 Ridge Avenue, was inspired by Catherine Ryan Hyde’s “Pay it Forward.” This mural uses prominent African-American role models such as Martin Luther King Jr. who have “paid it forward.”
