In 1939 Atlanta-based artist Hale Woodruff painted a series of murals for Talladega College, one of the oldest HBCUs (historically Black colleges and universities) in the United States.  Three murals commemorate the centennial of the historic Amistad Revolt of 1839. Three more celebrate the building of Talladega’s Savery Library.  Now, these six murals – newly-restored by the High Museum of Art - are back home  and on exhibit at Talladega.
