Wing Luke Museum to host ‘Confronting Hate Together’ exhibit

The Wing Luke Museum in Seattle is hosting an exhibit called “Confronting Hate Together.” The exhibit will officially open on May 22.

According to a press release, the exhibit was created through a partnership between the Wing Luke Museum, the Black Heritage Society of Washington State and Washington State Jewish Historical Society. It will examine racism, antisemitism, hate and bigotry in Washington state.

Confronting Hate Together is such an ambitious and timely project,” the group said in a joint statement. “Given increased incidences of antisemitism, worsening racism in the African American community and growing anti-Asian hate, alongside all sentiments of hate impacting so many communities, this initiative was inspired by our organizations’ mutual commitment to unity, solidarity and action.” 

The statement also emphasized the importance of affecting change on a local level.

“While global events are at the forefront of many of our minds, our ability to affect change starts locally. Our work is on unification. For us, it is not enough to shine a light on hate. We must also promote conversations about hate, antisemitism, bigotry, and racism in supportive settings while offering visitors the tools to act on their learning.”
