Rising Up: Hale Woodruff’s Murals at Talladega College

Hale Woodruff created an amazing series of black history murals for Talladega College in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The New York Times says, “Woodruff’s murals may be the greatest to emerge from the American Social Realist and mural movements of the 1930s and ’40s.” Woodruff’s murals were recently restored to their original brilliance, and are now on display through October 13 at the NYU 80WSE Galleries in NYC. They’ve never been seen before in NYC and probably never will be again, so head down to the Galleries ASAP. I visited the show yesterday and was stunned by the scale, detail, and conceptual brilliance of these paintings, especially the series on the Amistad mutiny and trial. 

Pictured above (top to bottom):

The Mutiny on the Amistad (1939)

The Repatriation of the Freed Captives (1939)
