Film Prompts for Discussing Race/Separation
In the documentary, Jim Crow Museum, Dr. David Pilgrim argues that we don't need to stop talking about race; that we need to talk about race better. The traveling exhibit "Hateful Things" primarily focuses on such issues.
Although the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University was established to discuss issues to African Americans, the museum has expanded its objectives to include: "Serve as a resource for civil rights and human rights organizations." The traveling exhibit "Them" includes various images of separation.
