Title

Illustration "Map of Campus"

Description

This comedic map of the University of Richmond campus features racist jokes. One can be seen in the captions around the gym, called "Jim," which refer to black athletic trainer Esau Brooks as "the Indian rubber man." Running to the gym is an "Indian with hair." Also notable is that the basement of Maryland Hall is called a "slave galley."
