College Mural depicting lynching and organised labour.

Mural entitled "The Struggle of the South," by the communist painter Joe Jones. Painted in 1935 for Commonwealth College near the western Arkansas town of Mena and displayed in a dining hall. The school was opened in 1923. The mural is to be restored after having been removed and stored over decades in the school's art department.
