Rosa Parks, Mae Carol Jemison the first female African-American astronaut, Barack Obama, Martin Luther King Jr, and many others graced the wall.

There was a quote spread throughout the mural as well:

Today I had a dream, you see
and this is what it means to me:
that poverty and war will end
and everyone will be my friend.”

“People with autism also have a dream,” Yvette Faulkner said. Yvette is a Direct Support Professional and has been with Good Neighbor for eight years.

Yvette and her team help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities break down barriers and accomplish their goals. To her, Black History Month and Autism Awareness represent similar journeys of creating and fighting for the opportunities that every person deserves.
