Inscription.
Painted in 1977,
A People Without Murals Is A Demuralized People
is the oldest and only mural remaining in Adams Morgan created by a group of Latino immigrant artists. It was brought back to life in 2005 by Sol & Soul, a D.C. artist-activist organization, with the collaboration of artist Juan Pineda.

Sol & Soul thanks Jim Graham, Councilmember Ward One, for helping to make this project possible. We also thank the Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1C - Adams Morgan DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, and the Mayor's Office of Latino Affairs for supporting this project.

Dedicated to all those who struggled to make — and keep — this neighborhood their home.

Dedicado a todos aquellos que lucharon por hacer y mantener esta vecindad su hogar.
Sol & Soul, October 2005
