Elk Rapids Area Historical Society (ERAHS) History Museum
is closed to the public until further notice.

Our usual once-a-month (May through October) in-person programs have been expanded to ONLINE presentations three-times-a-month EVERY MONTH for as long as they are available to us from the Historical Society of Michigan.
August 31, 2021 (Tuesday) - Noon to 1:00 p.m.
Hear This Historical Lecture thru HISTORY HOUNDS Lecture Series, Presented by the Historical Society of Michigan for Elk Rapids Area Historical Society Members:
Documenting Racism:
 The Jim Crow Museum
Presented by:
Jennnifer Rose Hasso and Cyndi Tiedt, Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia
Join us as we tour the Jim Crow Museum to explore the history of anti-black caricatures, propaganda, and rhetoric. Jim Crow laws and customs demeaned and oppressed African Americans in ways that still affect our nation, but the museum opens dialogues about discriminatory history to promote social and racial justice.

*** Register by 3:00 p.m. Monday, August 30th ***
