Magical Black Tears Experience: Museum Exhibition Pilot
The Magical Black Tears Experience is an interactive exhibition based on the children’s picture book Magical Black Tears: A Protest Story by Decoteau J. Irby. The exhibition teaches children ages 4-12 about direct action as a vehicle for creating a more just society for Black people. In the pilot exhibition, caregivers and children can watch films, read, write, create, pretend-play, and problem-solve in a fun setting that teaches how everyday people take direct action to create a world free from racism.
The Magical Black Tears Experience Exhibition pilot was developed by Derute Consulting Cooperative in collaboration with Black Child Development Institute of Milwaukee, the Milwaukee County Office of Equity, The City of Milwaukee Office of Early Childhood Initiatives, and Embrace Improve Empower LLC. The exhibition pilot is made possible by the generous sponsorship of Milwaukee Area Technical College and the Milwaukee County Office of Equity.
