We’re a Culture, Not a Costume

Ten students in the group Students Teaching About Racism in Society (STARS) at the Ohio University have started an education campaign called: "We're a Culture, Not a Costume." It juxtaposes racial stereotypes with real people. One of the students, Sarah Williams, said this about the campaign:

"These posters act as a public service announcement for colored communities. It’s about respect, human dignity, and the acceptance of other cultures (these posters simply ask people to think before they choose their Halloween costume)."
