MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A new exhibit is now open at the National Civil Rights Museum. It involves the KKK, but not the one you may be thinking of.

“Kin Killin’ Kin” features charcoal paintings that serve as a protest and call to action to address black on black crime.

The exhibit shows parallels between civil rights history and contemporary issues where gun violence is the equivalent to the terrorism of the Ku Klux Klan.

The 14 art pieces will be on display through April 29.
