Non-Golfer Activities Friday, September 26, 2014 - continues A little piece of History (Black History) A collector of African-American artifacts for 40 years, he showcases his finds – at least a portion of them at the museum where they join in silent but eloquent testimony. The African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey tells the tale of a people. The museum is the ministry of Ralph Hunter who has lived in Atlantic City since the 1950’s. While it draws many of its materials from the seashore, the museum hardly limits its scope to the history of blacks in Atlantic City. Its colorful assortment of paintings, poster, books, magazines, record albums, and household items retrieved from countless sources reflects the impact of black culture in the United States, underscoring both hardships and achievement. Icons and stereotypes are in evident. Duke Ellington, Booker T. Washington, and Muhammad Ali rub shoulders with Amos ‘n’ Andy, the Gold Dust Twins, Aunt Jemima, and the eager- to-please Cream of Wheat server. “He was a waiter in Chicago and had his photograph taken,” The museum believes he was paid $5.00 by Nabisco for the use of the image. Ralph Hunter meant his collection to be all things African-American. His inventory of sports vintage equipment, slave auction posters, and striking photographs of the likes of Billie Holiday, Marian Anderson and more are on display. Don’t Miss It!
