At Kalamazoo Valley Museum September 17, 2017 to January 14, 2018 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, collected by Dr. David Pilgrim, a Ferris State University Distinguished Teacher. At first, Dr. Pilgrim purchased these items, along with many others, to destroy them. Then he decided that he would use these disturbing, racist objects and images to teach about racism, to challenge audiences to think deeply about diversity and race relations. Thus, he has spent his adult life using objects of intolerance to teach tolerance. It works. His goal is to get people talking about diversity and race relations in meaningful ways – and, then, to go and do something positive. This exhibit, which is not recommended for children under the age of 12, contains examples of disturbing objects and images from both the past and the present. Through these objects and images, the viewer is able to both examine and gain an understanding of the historical as well as current stereotyping of African Americans. Hateful Things is an important reminder of the racism that existed, and still exists, in America today.
