Today at work I was talking to their thoughtful young daughter about my horror at learning Black children were used to bait alligators so the skin could be used for luxury goods. She was equally horrified & then went to her room & brought back this artifact of “pickininny art” that was recently given to her. It has no artistic merit & is politically detestable but a Black history museum would probably be interested in it. Texas may be filled with such artifacts because of the strength of the Confederacy here & the resistance to Black Reconstruction.
