the allegory underline


You'll fine a colorful piece of Black History on Miami's The Underline - a favorite stretch of the East Coast Greenway in South Florida - in "The Allegory,” a 2021 mural by artist and designer Edny Jean Joseph. This inspiring 77-foot wide mural tells the story of the Bahamian workers brought to Miami to build Flagler’s railroad. Their story is told through the allegory of Plato’s Cave - the journey of overcoming life’s obstacles and becoming your own community with shared ideals.
