A mural with a message

The SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival returned for its eighth year, with 18 artists creating murals around the city, including one on the west wall of the Piano Man building on the USF St. Petersburg campus.

The mural was painted by Miami-based artist Reginald O'Neal and depicts both the Mundari tribe of South Sudan and historian John Henrik Clark, a pioneer in the creation of Africana Studies who established one of the first and most influential Africana departments in the country at Hunter College in New York City.
