MISSOULA — White supremacy books and other materials confiscated from a racist group in Superior have been turned into a statement against hate in an exhibit at the University of Montana.

Montana Human Rights Network Executive Director Travis McAdams says the exhibit, "Speaking Volumes," started with one man who wanted out of the National Creativity Movement in Superior. McAdams says the man bartered the group's supply of a book called "The White Man's Bible" in exchange for gas money. The human rights group took the books, hoping to stop the group from spreading the literature around.

Nearly 3,000 books were turned into a 10-by-10 foot house for the exhibit. Artist Dana Boussard says it's intended to show that racism begins at home and people aren't born that way.
