Jim Crow museum

David Pilgrim, Ph.D., the founder and curator of the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University in Michigan, visited Kent State University on February 11 and 12 to engage students in a discussion about the effects of racist images embedded in popular culture throughout history. The museum, which contains the largest public collection of Segregation-era artifacts, uses objects of racism to teach tolerance and promote social justice.
