The Jim Crow Museum uses objects of intolerance to teach tolerance and promote social justice. The Jim Crow Museum houses over nine
thousand artifacts; the majority of which are anti-black and were created between the 1870s and the 1960s, which reflect contemporary attitudes
about African Americans during the Jim Crow era. The museum has other Jim Crow memorabilia that supported racial segregation that can be found in the form of books, signs, tickets, brochures, and photographs. Their artifacts and exhibits document the pervasiveness of racist ideas and anti-black images in American culture.
