Talladega in New York

By a happy accident I discovered today - the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington - that a famous set of murals from America's oldest historically black college (in Alabama), Hale Woodruff's murals for Talladega College, are on display at an NYU gallery on Washington Square Park. Dazzling in their restored colors, they remind of the long struggle for freedom, and of the work and hope that went into it.
