 slavery Agricultural Commissioner Says "Paintings Must Come Down"

Agricultural Commissioner Gary Black says that before he takes office some decorations must be changed.

Black refers to the two paintings hanging in the lobby of the Agricultural building as “undesirable”. The paintings depict images of slavery and half-naked Native Americans. The art is the work of  George Beattie, who was trying to depict the history of farming in Georgia. The paintings have hung in the lobby for over fifty years.
