Committee moves forward with plans to replace controversial courthouse mural

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT ) — Jefferson County leaders are moving forward with plans to replace a controversial mural at the courthouse in downtown Birmingham.

Thursday, the “mural committee” approved hiring a consultant from Atlanta to look into how the mural is attached to the wall.
