Pictured: UCLA’s “The Black Experience” mural, created in 1970, illustrates the history of Black people in America. Seven Black artists and UCLA alumni collaborated on the artwork after protests broke out nationwide in response to the Kent State University shootings. Restorations to the mural were completed in 2014, and it remains on display in Ackerman Union.
