Mural Comes Down

University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto says a controversial mural at the school that has been the object of protest for its depictions of black people and Native Americans is coming down.Capilouto’s message Friday to students, faculty and staff said the mural makes it difficult to address important matters.The mural, which has remained covered since a protest and hunger strike last year, “carries with it tremendous symbolic weight,” says Capilouto.
