We recently visited the African American Museum at 1783 Chestnut St.
Since we both grew up in Bowling Green during the 1950s and 1960s, we believed we knew a lot about the African American community and their lives during those times. We were wrong. Ms. Wathetta Buford and Ms. Maxine Ray offered an enlightened view of our history, room by room, while we toured the museum. The tour was informative, thought-provoking and delightful.
If you have not yet been to the museum, we certainly recommend it. It is funded by donations only. There is an African American Museum Gala at the Knicely Center on Sept. 21 to raise both funds and awareness for this very worthwhile project.
