Sad News About the Black History Museum

Posted by Adam Graham on May 14, 2007

From Channel 2 News:

BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ The Idaho Black History Museum has laid off both staff members and cut its hours to just one day a week because of budget problems.

Board member Carolyn Casey says the museum needs about 100-thousand dollars a year to cover salaries and operating expenses. But at the main fundraising event in February, the museum raised less than half of that.

This would sound like a great project for bloggers to get together on. Unfortunately, from my experience blogathons are more likely to make bloggers feel better rather than alleviating the problem and raising money.

I’ve always wanted to visit the museum, but work’s gotten in the way. A couple years back with my in-laws out here, I went to go to the museum and found to my chagrin Howard Dean had co-opted it for a fundraiser, so I still haven’t been there yet. Maybe soon.
