The Marc Steiner Show

The National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, An Often Overlooked Gem in Baltimore

National Great Blacks in Wax MuseumJanuary 31, 2014 – Segment 2

We visit the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum! We tour the museum with Dr. Joanne Martin, the museum’s President, and CEO, who co-founded the museum with her late husband Elmer. As we walked through the museum and enjoy the exhibits, we also talk about the museum’s plan to transform itself into an anchor in East Baltimore’s Oliver neighborhood.
