Valerie Babb on the George Beattie Murals at the Georgia Museum of Art

This video features Valerie Babb, a professor of English and director of the Institute for African American Studies at the University of Georgia (UGA). Babb talks about the images of women and slaves, the way these four murals and the other four (which focus on then-contemporary agriculture) fit together, some of the problems in Beattie's representations and the importance of keeping even controversial art visible.
