The things that ended up inside of museums because of assumptions about white superiority

Our museums are filled with objects that were taken from people who were considered not worthy of retaining them.

1. Definitely a lot of decolonizing and anti-racist work that needs to be done in museums.

2. Reminds me of my one of my favorite scenes from Black Panther

Side note: Black Panther is one of my favorite movies: Not as a super hero movie: For what Ryan Koogler was trying to tell us: I imagined what life would have been like if the peoples and resources had been left in tact in the various regions of Africa and allowed to flourish. Beautiful story behind the super hero story on the surface.
