(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) An interactive exhibit is on display at Missouri Western.

The University's Center for Multicultural Education and the Division of Student Affairs built a tunnel of oppression highlighting discrimination, power and privilege.

Tour guides took visitors through different scenarios and exhibits.

After the tour, guests could discuss what they saw.

"We hope that the students coming through the tunnel will actually be able to come out of their comfort zone and see what opression actually is and see that it is still happening in today's society," worker Jordann Barron said.

She said they had a good turnout and expect even more visitors throughout the week.

The exhibit runs through November 8th and is free to the public.
