Planners of Black History Museum in SC seek public input

From the Associated Press (Published on NewsOK •  Published: February 24, 2015)

“CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Organizers of a $75 million International African American Museum on Charleston Harbor are holding a public forum to get input from people on what the museum should display.

The forum is being held on Tuesday (February 24) near where the museum will be built.

Bernard Powers, a historian from the College of Charleston, is the head of the program committee.

Also attending the session is Ralph Appelbaum, the noted museum designer whose credits include developing exhibits for the Holocaust Museum, the Capitol Hill Visitor Center and the Newseum in Washington.

Officials announced last year that the Charleston museum will be built at the site of wharf where tens of thousands of slaves first set foot in the United States.”
