Re-Home The Baker County Mural

Immediately remove the racist mural from the Baker County courthouse.

Why is this important?

In 2001, Eugene Barber painted the mural that depicts many historical event in Baker county, from the civil war, all the way to civil rights. The problem is that it shows Three Klans men riding on horses. Not only is it disrespectful but its also contradictory considering we are all equal in the eyes of the law.

The goal is to protect the artistic integrity while also compromising with conflicting beliefs, that’s why we believe that Heritage park or the local historical society would be a wonderful home for the Mural. Not only will the painting remain exact how Eugene Barber designed it, One of these sites would provide access for anyone who wishes to see it with arguably more ease.

This isn’t the first petition to call for this mural to be taken care of, and hopefully it will be the last. How many more people need to come forward and say “this is hurtful” until James Croft and the other Commissioners realize that they them selves are holding back our county from being a great, strong, welcoming and loving county.

Reasons for signing

  • It would be a awful time in American history not to know that belongs nowhere but then to have it on the side of a court building. Your broadcasting an extremely bloody and grossly violent time. Was that supposed to celebrate something.
  • STOP PRAISING WHITE SUPREMACY. THIS MURAL IS UNACCEPTABLE AND NEEDS TO BE REMOVED
