Outrageous African American Stories at the Massillon Museum

The Massillon Museum’s Missing History of Massillon: Unheard African American Stories exhibition opens Saturday with a free public reception from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Aultman Health Foundation Gallery.

The exhibition features oral history, archives, photographs and artifacts “celebrating the rich narrative of Massillon’s black community,” according to a museum press release.

Some items will come from the museum’s permanent collections; others will be recent purchases collected from the community during the project.

"Free haircuts" by Gary Harwood is a digital photograph in the Massillon Museum Collection.  Fred Hannon is shown with Edgar Herring while resting between customers at the Ebony and Ivory Barbershop on First Street SE.

The Marva L. Dodson CHARISMA Collection will be on display, as well as contemporary photographs by Cleveland artist Amber N. Ford.

Staff and volunteers recorded 30 past and present stories. Submissions from the community and scans from the museum’s permanent collection now total more than 2,500 objects documenting Massillon’s black history.

The Massillon Museum is located at 121 Lincoln Way East in downtown Massillon. Admission is free.

Mattie Smith and Bernie Green are shown in 1960.  Bernie's Food Market at 104 Tremont St. SW met the needs of the predominantly black neighborhood.  The photo is part of a collection at the Massillon Museum.

“Drop Dead” performed at Minerva High School

“Drop Dead” will be performed Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Minerva High School Auditoria.

The Minerva Area Chamber of Commerce presents the play in association with the Louisville Community Theater.

“In this farce from Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore, a cast of former actors plot to revive their careers in a crime thriller directed by ‘Wonder Child of the Broadway Stage’ Victor Le Pewe (a psychotic, tongue-in-cheek megalomaniac),” it reads in a press release from the Chamber of Commerce of the Minerva Region.
