Sketchbook: Massillon Black History

In this edition of “Sketchbook,” we visit the Massillon Museum in Massillon, Ohio to learn about the town's history.

The Massillon Museum is gathering the memories, artifacts, and stories of African Americans who trace their heritage to Massillon, Ohio.

Marva Dodson shares her experiences growing up as a native Massillonian, and why collecting artifacts and memories are so important to the community and history of the town.

Natalia Garcia is a digital producer for the education team at Ideastream Public Media.
