This exhibition featured a recording originally used as part of a training session for police departments. It is now a virtual gallery tour and features pieces that confront racist violence, including: Rashid Johnson’s Thurgood in the Hour of Chaos (2009), Kara Walker and Klaus Bürgel’s Golddigger (2003), Thomas Nast’s 1864 political cartoon Compromise with the South, and the Documenting Ferguson digital archive. The tour will be led by Geoff Ward, professor of African and African-American Studies in Arts & Sciences at Washington University. Registration is free but required here.
