Objectively Racist (NEW)

Objectively Racist (NEW)

Media and imagery can heavily influence the way people see the world, and that influence is not always positive. Through this exhibit, you will learn about the history of these racist caricatures, the effect they've had on the African American community, and the implications they still have today. Objectively Racist includes images, product packaging, knick-knacks, and other objects that help perpetuate individual, institutional, and structural racism.
