  1. As of December 9, 2019, the clerk of the federal court in Athens said she’s worked there for 12 years and has fielded a “handful” of questions about the mural..but she has never seen the mural amd they have no idea what happened to it.

  2. This mural is located in the R. G. Stephens Jr. Federal Building located at
    355 Hancock Avenue in Athens. It is not in the courthouse/post office just down the street.
