NUTLEY, NJ - The rallies against racial injustice arrived in Nutley's Memorial Park this week, and it sounded like, a whisper. Unlike the typical rally, with chants and songs, chalk artists took to the paved pathway in the park to leave messages of hope, memorialize those killed, and support to end racial injustice in the United States.

The messages first appeared Sunday morning, on the entire length of the walkway from Chestnut St. to Vreeland Ave. 

No information about the artists is known, but it's not hard to surmise that many parties, of varying ages, were involved given the diverse styles of writing.

The chalk messages were not the only social justice art to appear in Nutley's parks. On Sunday, a LGBTQ yarn bomb hard was installed on the gate in Yantacaw Park at the Vincent Pl. entrance.

This Sunday, residents will participate in a 'Greatness Begins In Our Backyards' march.
