Re: Enlighten or Erase? Saving the Depression Era WPA murals at George Washington High School

As a former GWHS student and a retired art teacher, I am doubly outraged by the proposed erasing of two historical murals as you enter the school. Unlike statues removed in the south, put there are a tribute to white supremacy, these murals are a depiction of the cruel injustices of our history. It’s intention is to expose, educate and repulse. This is outrageous.
