Letters to the Museum

"Obama Bucks"

Thank you for upkeep and passion for the Jim Crow Museum. I have read with keen interest many of the articles and items on your website and I truly hope some day to visit.

Attached to this email is a political mailer sent out to GOP members regarding Senator Barack Obama. The original place where I obtained this information is this website: www.pe.com/localnews/inland/stories/PE_News_Local_S_buck16.3d67d4a.html.

Obama Bucks

Obviously, this is not a "Jim Crow Era" item, but you reference on your site how these things continue today in some ways...and as a history major and a person who is passionate about African and African-American history, I heartily and regrettably agree with that assessment.

Thank you and keep up the good work.
