In her Artist’s Statement, Jennifer Scott explains, “This series of six paintings and three collages responds to lynching postcards that were mailed around the country during the Jim Crow Era as souvenirs. Thousands upon thousands of African Americans were lynched between the 1880s and the Second World War. Over the years, I have thought about what I did not see in the postcards, primarily the family members left behind to take down the victim, to mourn and bury their remains if there was enough left to bury.”

We are honored to host this powerful exhibit in our Jim Crow Gallery.
