THEM: Images of Separation is a traveling exhibition from the Jim Crow Museum at Ferris State University ┬áthat showcases items from popular culture used to stereotype different groups. The negative imagery — found on postcards, license plates, games, souvenirs and costumes — promoted stereotyping against such groups as African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanics, Jews and poor whites, as well as those who are “other” in terms of body type or sexual orientation.
