Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia Virtual Tour

Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia Virtual Tour

The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia has amassed the nation’s largest public collection of artifacts spanning the segregation era, from Reconstruction until the civil rights movement and beyond. The n-word is prevalent throughout, and many items portray black men as lazy, violent or inarticulate. Black women are shown as kerchief-wearing mammies, sexually charged Jezebels or other stereotypes. David Pilgrim, the Black founder and curator who started building the collection as a teenager, makes no apologies for the provocative exhibits. The goal of the $1.3 million gallery, he explained, is “to get people to think deeply.” Register for this group virtual tour at https://4eyes.io/s/1h04g/ by 10am on February 15.
