Hateful Things is a traveling exhibit from the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University. This exhibit contains 39 items from the late 19th century to the present day. All of the pieces, as well as several images of violence, help to illustrate the effects of the Jim Crow laws against African Americans. The Kalamazoo Valley Museum will be supplementing the exhibit with objects from its Collection as well as items on loan. This exhibit is meant to examine the history of racism as well as present-day stereotyping, and to help promote racial healing.
