This is a mural, comprised of twelve (12) painted plywood panels, that was created and displayed in the Resurrection City encampment on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. during the summer of 1968. The panels were installed together, four panels (4) horizontally across the top and eight (8) panels installed vertically on the bottom, to form a thirty-two (32) foot long wall. The boards were painted by Resurrection City activists with slogans, quotes and art. Painted text at the top of the panel reads: [Hunger's Wall: Tell It Like It Is].
