Abstract:

This work begins by providing information on contemporary and traditional modes of viewing black memorabilia, focusing on the shifting meanings assigned to such collectables and their growing popularity in recent years. From there, I will probes the usefulness of displaying racist memorabilia within a museum setting, specifically addressing the museum’s ability to present an accurate image of history while constructing a rhetoric of tolerance and promoting discussions of race.
