What does racism, hate and bigotry look like today? What strategies can communities take to combat it? These questions and more are posed by the powerful and compelling Confronting Hate Together exhibit. Confronting Hate Together is a pop-up exhibit that explores hate, bigotry, antisemitism, and racism in our community through a local, regional lens. The inaugural showing of the exhibit, which launches at the Wing Luke Museum runs from May 22, 2024 through – June 30, 2024.

Inspired by the 2022 "Confronting Hate 1937-1952" exhibit at the New York Historical Society Museum and Library, Confronting Hate Together is produced in joint partnership with the Black Heritage Society of Washington State, the Washington State Jewish Historical Society and the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience around the common themes of hate experienced by each of these communities alongside community responses. While the New York Historical Society centered their exhibit around a groundbreaking multimedia campaign in 1937 to combat growing antisemitism before, during and after the Holocaust, the Confronting Hate Together exhibit borrows elements of that program to create a contemporary portrayal of racism, hate and bigotry and community collective action through stories localized in this region. The goal of the exhibit is to educate communities and empower them to combat the rising tide of hate and racial violence in our communities today.
