Letters to the Museum

An Infamous Sign

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.

Sincerely,
