Annotation A young painter named Levette Ashmore killed himself in 1941 when his mural--which showed a taboo subject: blacks and whites dancing together--was rejected by the WPA and destroyed. Sixty years later, in modern-day New Orleans, a journalist finds that the mural may still exist, that its value is incalculable--and that there are people who would kill for it.
