How James Cameron’s True Story of a Lynching Led to Milwaukee’s Black Holocaust Museum

Subject

James Cameron; Milwaukee’s Black Holocaust Museum; Lynching

Description

Cameron, who passed way at age 92 in 2006, was founder of America’s Black Holocaust Museum in Milwaukee, which has become world-famous. After closing 10 years ago, the museum reopened in February on the ground floor of the Griot Building, at 401 W. North Ave. We first met in 1986, when I was a columnist-editorial writer with The Milwaukee Journal, and he presented me with a signed copy of his book. Over the next decade, I toured the museum’s original building at North Fourth and West North Avenue, and we had many private conversations.
