This issue presents a sampling of instituional murals by masters of the mural tradition which are documents of African American life and culture.  They are visual history, an extension of the impulse to communicate through the oral tradition, as well as reminders of African American ancestral roots, historical antecedents, cultural influences, and vital elements which contribute to the fulfillment of the human spirit for those who frequent the institutions of which they are a part.
