Ralph Hunter, 75, of Atlantic City, co-founded and directs the nonprofit African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey in the Newtonville section of Buena Vista Township. Hunter opened it 11 years ago with his private collection of African-American memorabilia, and the nonprofit has added to the collection throughout the years. Hunter recently signed a contract to write “Atlantic City Icons,” his first book, for local-history publisher Arcadia Publishing, of Mount Pleasant, S.C. He spoke to The Press of Atlantic City about Black History Month, the museum and its collection.
