Jim Crow Museum of Racists Memorabilia


Timothy McLaughlin, PhD, professor emeritus at Cazenovia College NY, will explore the origins and impact of the Jim Crow system and “popular” racism in white America, briefly review the legal and political decisions that made Jim Crow possible, then examine the cultural artifacts of white racism largely through the resources of the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University.   The presentation concludes with examples of how Black Americans responded to their grim circumstances through adaptation and resistance. McLaughlin’s favorite course, Race, Rights, and Resistance was a seminar on Black history from the fight to end slavery to the ongoing struggle for equality within contemporary American society. Dr. McLaughlin is Vice-President of the NAHOF Cabinet of Freedom.
