African Americans IN OUR Museum

January 15 @ 1:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by helping the museum tell the story of African Americans in Muskegon County.  The museum is trying to grow our collection of African American history and YOU can help! Contribute your personal or family story to the museum by:

  • Sharing stories and information about when and why your family came to Muskegon.
  • Allowing the Museum to scan photos you have of family and community groups from the past.
  • Sitting down for an oral history interview if you were involved in the Civil Rights movement. See contact info below.

In addition to collecting local African American stories, photos and information, we will be streaming the PBS documentary “The March” in our auditorium at 2pm, 3pm, 4pm and 5pm.

If you have something to share, but cannot attend that day, or if you would like to set up an oral history interview contact, Program Manager, Jackie Huss at 724-5526 or jackie@lakeshoremuseum.org.
