Podcast by David Pilgrim, Chief Diversity Officer

In 1996, David Pilgrim established the Jim Crow Museum at Ferris State University in Michigan. As the university's Chief Diversity Officer and a professor of sociology, one of Pilgrim's goals is to use objects of intolerance—the “contemptible collectibles” in his museum—to teach about tolerance. In this podcast, he talks about his struggles to teach using the items in his museum, and how hatreds like racism, antisemitism, sexism, and homophobia are problems that belong to everyone.
