The Jim Crow Museum Virtual Tour – Zoom

March 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Jim Crow Museum’s virtual tour investigates the history of anti-black caricatures, propaganda, and rhetoric in material and popular culture. Most of the collection focuses on Jim-Crow era objects, but also showcases exhibits that feature enslavement, Reconstruction-era, Civil Rights-era, and contemporary objects. These primary sources are used to document and learn from the past. Jim Crow laws, social customs, policies, and etiquette demeaned, segregated, and oppressed African Americans in a myriad of ways that continue to influence contemporary life and race relations. In addition to teaching and opening dialogues about America’s unsavory and discriminatory history, the Jim Crow Museum promotes social and racial justice. Registration for this free program will open on February 25 at 10 am. To register, visit hackleylibrary.org, HPL’s Facebook page, call 231-722-8011, or stop by the library. Free.
