Benton Mural Under Fire at IU In 1933, Midwestern artist Thomas Hart Benton painted one of his famous murals for Indiana University. Today, black students are protesting a scene that depicts a Ku Klux Klan rally. The students say it's a painful image and should be removed. Defenders say it honestly reflects a regrettable part of the Hoosier State's history. Will Murphy of member station WFIU reports.
