How this ‘Justice for Junior’ mural is uniting a Bronx community after a 15-year-old’s murder

Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, a 15-year-old from the Bronx, was killed in June 2018 by gang violence in a case of mistaken identity. Artist George Fernandez saw the trending hashtag #justiceforjunior on Instagram and immediately traveled to New York to create a mural honoring Junior’s life.
