National Civil Rights Museum says
Join us for a reception with Kin Killin' Kin artist James Pate as he talks about his work and the inspiration for the series. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP is requested.

Kin Killin' Kin is one of the most powerful, thought-provoking art exhibitions on youth and gun violence in African American communities. Dubbed the KKK Series, the exhibit is intended to incite controversy and critical thinking by juxtaposing scenes from civil rights history over images of urban infighting that is the reality today. This compelling collection serves as art in protest and a call to action to address the root of the violence that affect not only African Americans but also all citizens.

"Every piece is a moment of silence and dedication to the people who have had to deal personally with our losses," said Pate. Guests are encouraged to leave a name, photo and/or message memorializing gun violence victims on the exhibit "Memorial Wall." The exhibit is on display at the Museum until April 29.
