[NC] African-American museum to open

Local group plans to open African-American museum
By Angela Mack
Staff Writer

Exhibits envisioned

John Battle isn't sure what exhibits Wilmington's African American Heritage Museum will showcase.

Historic 1898 race riot documents.

Personal stories from members of the Wilmington 10.

Taped recordings about what it was like growing up in the Port City's black communities.

Right now, it's still a vision to him and members of the African American Heritage Foundation, the local group whose mission is to bring the museum to life.

In 2004, the group purchased the roughly 6,000-square-foot Richter's Building on North Fourth Street to use for the museum.
