THEE Realist
A mural honoring civil rights legends — both living and dead — who blazed a path for equality was unveiled at Jackson State University Saturday morning.
Entitled "Chain Breakers," the mural depicts six civil rights activists as they rise above a chain that is broken. The notable figures in the mural range from the community's first florist to the first African American female legislator in the state.
