“Moving Targets” at the Rosa Parks Museum at Troy University April 18, 2019 – October 28, 2019
Gun culture has become highly romanticized in American culture. Today, guns are marketed as objects of amusement and have a place in American idioms and sports jargon. In convenience stores, cap guns and water guns are readily accessible for visitors and children. African Americans have a long history of being profiled and marked as a target. Targets can be anything, which is why Jones feels the need to define them and get the audience involved by letting visitors create their own conclusion of what they see in each target.
