This panel, titled “'Cruel Adversity,' has been a hot topic in Durham. Officials hope the post office will add interpretive text to contextualize the image.
At the center of the weekend's turmoil in Charlottesville is a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. White nationalists were in the city over the weekend to protest plans to remove that statue, and counter-protesters were there to oppose them. While New Hampshire isn't seeing much debate over old confederate monuments, at a post office in Durham, a 1950's-era mural is raising questions about another uncomfortable part of our nation's history.
