Last game for Oakland in their Coliseum?

UNDATED (AP) — In Monday night football tonight, it’s Denver at Oakland.

The Raiders might be playing their final game ever at the rundown Oakland Coliseum in the 2018 home finale against the Broncos.

The Raiders are moving to Las Vegas in 2020 and have no lease for next year.

With Oakland officials having sued the team for the move, the Raiders are looking for temporary homes for 2019.


Murals near stadium highlight Atlanta’s civil rights legacy

ATLANTA (AP) — As Atlanta prepares to host the Super Bowl, murals highlighting the city’s civil rights and social justice legacy are going up on walls near the downtown stadium where the game will be played.

The murals are part of an initiative called “Off The Wall: Atlanta’s Civil Rights and Social Justice Journey.” It’s a collaboration between arts advocacy group WonderRoot and the Super Bowl host committee.

Eleven artists were selected to paint roughly 30 murals. They drew inspiration for their designs from “community conversations” held in the neighborhoods where the murals are being installed.

The initiative was timed to coincide with the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. But the murals are meant to be lasting public works of art for Atlanta residents to enjoy long after the football fans have left.
