An Infamous Sign

***The staff of the Jim Crow Museum receives dozens of letters and emails. Some of these communiques offer insight into race relations -- historically and in the present. While some are hateful, we have decided to share some of these letters and emails with our Internet visitors.***

Most recently I went looking for an infamous sign that did at one time hang outside an establishment preventing its use to people of color and landed on the Racist Memorabilia museum of Ferris University. Why? Well, you see a student on my campus here in Indianapolis created an "art installation" of signs that basically, to me, revisits a time when such signs did exist. If you have time, please take a look at this album and share your thoughts.
