      Rising Up: Hale Woodruff's Murals from Talladega College
      http://www.high.org/Art/Exhibitions/Rising-Up-Hale-Woodruff.aspx

      In 1938, Talladega College commissioned Hale Woodruff, an African-American
      muralist, to paint six murals that were installed in the Savery Library on
      campus, where they remained for more than 70 years. In 2011, the murals were
      removed from the walls of the Library as part of a collaborative project
      between Talladega College and the High Museum to conserve the murals, which
      are on display at the Museum until September 2012. At the website, visitors
      can not only see images of conservators literally peeling the murals off the
      library walls, but also examine digital versions of the artwork. For
      example, zoom in on the Portrait of Cinqué, one of the leaders of the
      Amistad rebellion, to see biographical information, or follow another link
      to see a comparison of the figure of a dead mutineer with Géricault's "The
      Raft of the Medusa," an art historical icon with which Woodruff would have
      been familiar. Other murals in the series are: The Trial of the Amistad
      Captives, The Repatriation of the Freed Captives, The Underground Railroad,
      Opening Day at Talladega College, and The Building of Savery Library. [DS]
