Fall-Winter Exhibition: October 3, 2015 – January 2016

Exhibition flyerMAKING NIGGERS: Demonizing and Distorting Blackness, curated by Project NIA.

Project NIA’s new exhibition asks “How did white people justify their continued subordination of Black people post emancipation?” The curators write: “Dozens of postcards will tell stories of how Black people were devalued over time. These artifacts illustrate how little Black lives have mattered in this country and why we need hashtags and movements like #BlackLivesMatter today. Our exhibition will introduce a new generation to postcards as historical documents and cultural artifacts for understanding anti-Black racism in the past and present.”

The exhibit will run through January, 2016.
