“Legendary,” The Roots Mural

“Legendary,” The Roots Mural

A project of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, Legendary pays tribute to Philadelphia’s own Grammy®-winning band The Roots, who have recorded more than a dozen albums and are the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Located at Broad and South Streets, the mural isn’t far from the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts, the alma mater of the band’s founders, Tarik “Black Thought” Trotter and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. It is included in the Albert M. Greenfield African American Iconic Images Collection, a tour of murals throughout the city that capture the rich African-American experience in Philadelphia.
