BPL exhibit on confronting hate is recommended

The current Boston Public Library exhibit "Choosing to Participate" examines how and why individuals decide to take action when faced with racist, sexist or anti-Semitic behavior.

Among other items, the exhibit recounts the solidarity displayed by residents of Billings, Mont. after anti-Semitic acts by skinheads. The exhibit offers compelling lessons for the Boston College community in wake of the recent hate e-mail incident, according to School of Education Assistant Dean for Students and Outreach John Cawthorne.

"It's very powerful," he said. "The exhibit shows how people can choose to be bystanders when others are victimized, or how they can take part in an effort to stand up for others."

"Choosing to Participate," runs until Dec. 19. For more information, call 536-5400.
