Incidentally, we have an interesting collection here, which is a KKK women's initiation package. It's used by an African-American professor to teach about conceptions of white womanhood, whiteness, and hate. This is a really good example of what one CAN do with such materials. However, it was bought with a fetishistic impulse (by someone no longer here), it just happened to be redeemed by a thoughtful professor.
