Free for UICA Members, Free with Admission
Dr. David Pilgrim, Founder and Director of the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Objects and Memorabilia, will discuss the caricatured depictions of African Americans that were deliberate attempts to distort the humanity of black people, and how black artists have been at the forefront of the battle against anti-black imagery, using their art to "deconstruct" racist imagery. Dr. David Pilgrim is one of this country's leading experts on issues relating to multiculturalism, diversity, and race relations. The Jim Crow Museum is a 5,000 piece collection of racist artifacts located at Ferris State University. Dr. Pilgrim is FSU’s Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion and an FSU Distinguished Teacher.
