New library exhibit shows tragedy of violence

INDIANAPOLIS - A new thought-provoking exhibit opened in the Indianapolis Public Central Library on Tuesday morning.

Library officials joined Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard for the opening of "Kin Killin’ Kin."

Artist James Pate crafted 13 images to serve as a memorial to the growing number of victims and to illustrate the tragedy of black violence in communities across the nation.

"It's not glorifying guns, it's drawing attention to the fact that they're so prevalent. That's where the title came from. That we've been beginning to put the Ku Klux Klan out of business. Cause we're killing each other more than the Klan hub," curator Willis Davis said.

The exhibit’s opening begins the library’s two-month Stand 4 Peace initiative which encourages conversation in finding solutions for crime.
