Kentucky Avenue and the Northside PDF Print E-mail

The Atlantic City Free Public Library held the opening for its "Atlantic City Experience: Magic of Kentucky Avenue" exhibit on Feb. 6, 2013, in celebration of Black History Month. The photos are from the library's Atlantic City Heritage Collections. The photos highlight the entertainment, people and places that made Kentucky Avenue such an iconic hot spot in the early-to-mid 1900s. African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey founder Ralph E. Hunter, Sr., was the guest speaker. In this clip, Hunter discusses opportunities presented to African-Americans in the city during that time.
