Tribes

Caption

The second acrylic panel The Temple Murals series is located on the left side of the hallway when facing the Shabazz Library in Dartmouth’s Shabazz Center. The panel depicts faces and masks that represent different African cultures, each painted near their geographic point of origin around the shape of the African continent. The sea of faces appears to move toward the viewer like a wave, representing the movement of the African Diaspora. Many faces in the mural were modeled after Dartmouth students on campus in the summer of 1972.
