Connections: Discussing the future of the racist carousel panel

Jul 11, 2017

Remember that racist panel that became a public controversy two years ago -- the panel depicting so-called "pickaninny art" on the Dentzel Carousel in Charlotte? That panel was taken down, and it's going to have a permanent home at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. The goal is to use the panel to educate the community about the various forms of racism that deny the humanity of black children. But first, the panel will be displayed at events around the community as part of educational forums.

Our guests explain:

  • Kathryn Murano, Rochester Museum and Science Center
  • Minister Clifford Florence, Central Church of Christ
  • Howard Eagle, Take It Down steering committee
