On Saturday, November 3, 2018, the Wisconsin Black Historical Society Museum celebrated its 30th Anniversary with a gala in the museum’s historic Bernice Lindsey Hall, 2060 West Center Street. For the last three decades the Museum has had the mission of preserving African American history here in Milwaukee and abroad. Special guests from Milwaukee’s diverse communities attended to give praise to the museum and its founder and Executive Director Clayborn Benson, III(left). The event was hosted by Attorney John Daniels, Jr. and Irma Daniels as the gala’s hosts, and former TMJ4 News Anchor Bill Taylor served as the keynote speaker. As part of the evening’s festivities the museum handed out special honors to those in the community who have been leaders and visionaries as well as supporters, including naming a research room after local activist Reuben Harpole (right).
