The artwork displayed is of musicians of an African American descent. The front panel reads "From Past and Present". There is a sense of movement within each diagram displayed. The one of the past shows two people playing the congo drums, which shows that it started out perhaps in Africa on the drums and then led to America playing outside of the home during slavery time, and then later to concert halls. The rhythm in these musicians is one of triumph. There is a sense of pride by understanding that something good was there all along with the music and still keeping at it no matter the circumstance. This shows determination as well as how comforting music was to the African American Negro during such adverse times.
