FSU’s Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia Receives Anonymous Donation

The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia just received a huge donation from an anonymous donor.

Someone donated still photographs from David Levinthal’s ‘Blackface’ series.

The Jim Crow Museum opened in 2012 at Ferris State University, inside the Flite Library on campus.

Since then, it has collected countless pieces of racist memorabilia from just about every single decade.

Recently, the Jim Crow museum received a hefty donation of nearly 135 photographs, estimated to be worth $2 million.

The photographs are a piece of art in addition to a stark reminder. The museum is excited to add to its display.

“The donation that we have received, they are prints from the famed photographer David Leveithal. It’s not an accident that they contacted us, because many of the images that are portrayed in the ‘Blackface’ series are pieces that we own in the museum,” said David Pilgrim, vice president of diversity and inclusion at FSU.

The museum is open for donations of any racist memorabilia you may have laying around your home.
