Lawrence Exhibit Captures Lingering Signs Of America’s Segregated Past | KCUR

‘Ghosts of Segregation’ presents photographic evidence of the prejudice and exclusion people of color faced.

Photographer Richard Frishman has searched out structures and sites in America that represent the segregation that was the law of the land, written and unwritten.

A bricked-over entrance once used by “colored” people to enter a theater, a “hanging tree” that became a gallows, and a concentration camp for Japanese-Americans during WWII are all part of Frishman’s “Ghosts of Segregation” exhibition currently at the Lawrence Arts Center.
