A Statement from the National Museum of the Great Lakes

Events of the past few weeks have once again raised issues related to race and justice in the United States. We are committed to ongoing efforts to ensure all Great Lakes stories are told—especially the undertold history of minority and underserved populations. History is a great teacher and it is because of that, our institution must work towards improving our present and future through careful and thoughtful examination of our past. We stand in solidarity with our fellow Black Americans. We also recognize that we have work to do as an institution and are committed to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and culture of the Great Lakes region, and making resources available to all.
