By creating the mural, Collins says he’s keeping a promise he made to Coretta Scott King.

“She said Paul please do me a favor, don`t let the community forget our struggle and who we are, don`t let them forget Martin’s dream, I want you to do that for me, because you can do it.

Collins says he was thinking of that promise while he created the mural.
