LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Kentucky unveiled plans Friday for a controversial mural featuring black workers in a tobacco field.

The mural in Memorial Hall on campus will be surrounded by other works of art that provide more context of the school's history.

UK President Eli Capilouto ordered the Great Depression-era mural to be covered up last November after students made their opposition known.

A task force appointed to decide the mural's future recommended that the mural be preserved, but with more historical context.

There's no word on when UK plans to unveil the artwork.
