Sammy Younge

Sammy Younge was the first youth killed in the civil rights movement. He was shot after using a whites only bathroom in the city of Tuskegee. At the time he was a veteran who was attending school at Tuskegee Institute. The mural was gifted to the city of Tuskegee through the Safe Haven after school program. This mural was apart of a Social Engagement class co-taught with MacArthur Fellow Rick Lowe.
