Bloomington’s history of racism

It is true that Carol Jenkins was murdered in Martinsville, but she was murdered by an Indianapolis man. She was also followed and harassed by two white men from Bloomington.

The history museum on Sixth Street in downtown Bloomington used to be a blacks only school, because blacks were not allowed to attend school with whites.

Those of us who live in Bloomington should not feel too proud when we sneer at surrounding counties, as our own history is also stained with racism.
