Black history exhibits planned for the Port Huron museum

Plans are underway for an exhibit at the Port Huron Muserum’s Carnegie Center focusing on Black history in the Blue Water Area. The museum has had a “Celebrations in Black” exhibit every February, and has partnered with the NAACP for a Juneteenth celebration, according to the Port Huron Museum’s community engagement manager Andrew Kercher. He tells WPHM that they’ve been working with local Black historian Marguerite Stanley, and they’re seeking input from the community to determine what should be included in the exhibit. One idea being considered is moving the James R. Leonard Center’s Memorial Wall from Cleveland Elementary School to the Port Huron Museum’s Carnegie Center. Residents can weigh in on that and other ideas about the Black History Exhibit in an online survey at The survey will remain up through the end of September.
