When DeAmon Harges and some of his Indianapolis neighbors found 25 doors dumped in an alley, they shared them with The Learning Tree, a neighborhood association. The Door Project funded the work of local artists, who created 64 colorful doors that share the narratives of the city’s African-American communities. Derek Tuder’s “No BOBS” door is accompanied by a statement: “Tupac and Biggie, two of the biggest martyrs to black-on-black slayings. We count the cost and the tears.”
