Still hoping there’s enough room for hometown hero – Lt. Kevin McCrae, DCFD 6 Engine No.4 Platoon. According to the Washington Post:

“Joining Michelle Obama on the wall are her husband, Barack Obama, and such giants as Muhammad Ali, Harriet Tubman and Prince. Also pictured are former Washington mayor Marion Barry; comedians Dick Gregory and Dave Chappelle; musicians Chuck Brown and Wale; and local media legends Jim Vance, Donnie Simpson and Russ Parr. There’s room for a few more faces, but for now those are being kept secret.”

Many more photos after the jump.

    This is fantastic!

  • Blithe

    Wow! Nice! Very, very nice!

    He’s a great artist, but Michelle Obama kinda looks like Serena Williams.

    • Anon

      You can’t unsee that

    • idontgetit

      Hmm…maybe it IS Serena Williams!!!!

  • MadMax

    Cool, but I thought it was supposed to be DC focused?

    • kapitolhill

      Exactly. What’s up with it now?

    • Effie

      I can’t tell if this comment is being sarcastic or not… even if it was, still a bit of a distasteful comment. Um.. It is extremely DC focused, and centered around quite an important history of African American culture within that area. ::eye rolls::

    They’ve begun to add color to it as of yesterday.
