    Jim Crow Museum

    From Aunt Jemima advertisements to the board game Gettopoly, American popular culture is replete with racist images.  The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia features an extensive collection of racist objects that trace the history of the stereotyping of African Americans.  The museum, located at Ferris State University, is offering “Hateful Things,” a traveling exhibition of these images to further the museum’s mission of stimulating the scholarly examination of historical and contemporary expressions of racism, as well as promoting racial understanding and healing.
