The Buddy Holly Center’s featured exhibition is Highways & Borders: 100 Years of Jim Crow, an exhibition that explores the effects of Jim Crow laws in Lubbock, Texas, and these laws actively affect our community. The Jim Crow laws were state and local laws introduced in the Southern United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that enforced racial segregation, “Jim Crow” being a pejorative term for an African-American. Such laws remained in force until the 1960s.
Artists Jarys Boyd, Danielle Demetria East, and Danna Simone will be present during the event to showcase their artwork and answer questions.
