The weather is getting warmer, which means it’s time to go out and have fun.

Baltimore's African-American heritage creates growing niche in city's tourism scene - Baltimore Business Journal

“One of Baltimore’s top African-American heritage museums, the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, chose its location as a means of bolstering the surrounding neighborhood and businesses. The museum, founded by university professors Joanne and Elmer Martin in 1983, moved to its present home at 1601-03 E. North Ave. 30 years ago.

“Some of our institutions have to be willing to stay in our communities to make those communities better,” Joanne Martin said. “That’s where our children are, whoever those children may be. Children who need to know this history, whether they’re African-American or not.”

As Baltimore celebrates Frederick Douglass' bicentennial, interest in his legacy is just one part of a growing niche within the tourism industry that focuses on the city's rich African-American history and culture.
