Ferris State University’s Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia has an important mission: to use objects of intolerance to teach tolerance and promote social justice.

The museum recently received a significant donation to help towards that mission.

An anonymous donor has given them 135 large-format Polaroid prints from photographer David Levinthal’s famous and controversial Blackface series.
