Hate knows many forms in human history, from global terror campaigns to everyday acts of discrimination. This tour offers an interactive experience that complements the Museum’s annual $100,000 Stop the Hate®: Youth Speak Out essay and Youth Sing Out songwriting contests. Through study of historical documents and artifacts, group discussion and writing activities, students reflect on racism, discrimination and oppression. Students are challenged to consider their roles in creating a better tomorrow.
