    New Michigan museum showcases racist artifacts

    [​IMG]

    BIG RAPIDS, Mich. - The objects displayed in Michigan's newest museum range from the ordinary, such as simple ashtrays and fishing lures, to the grotesque - a full-size replica of a lynching tree. But all are united by a common theme: They are steeped in racism so intense that it makes visitors cringe.

    That's the idea behind the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, which says it has amassed the nation's largest public collection of artifacts spanning the segregation era, from Reconstruction until the civil rights movement, and beyond.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    Point of information, this museum was featured today on DesteeTV in bro. oldsoul lecture on "Touchstone."

    Without a doubt, since you where born and raised there, I can take your word of it; however, others may need some evidence of that. Do you have anything on that issue, comparative with other northern States?

    Obviously, my reference was to Internet evidence, specific to this discussion, but thank God I posted this Thread for those unable to visit the museum, in person.
