WAMU reported:

“But the mural isn’t intended to honor Lincoln. That image, in tones of gray, black and white, is almost an afterthought.

Muralist Garin Baker said that the foreground features African-American men quarrying the white Georgia marble used to build Lincoln’s statue, as well as a poem by Frederick Douglass.”
