Raymond B. Cody

A well-known print by Raymond B. Cody is on display in lobby of Kelly Library.
"From slave ships...to the fields...through the crisis of the turbulent 60's...into the progressive 90's.  We never weakened...we never slumbered...we only persevered...as we fought to survive......THE STRUGGLE."

Dr. James Stewart and his wife Dr. Caryl Sheffield, have most graciously loaned it to us from their private art collection.  It will be on display throughout April..
