Idaho's Black History Museum struggles to stay open
By Kelly Lynae Robinson
This year, IBHM joined the party in style with dancing, music and food. At the party, Bob Trerise, former museum board member, met a young man from Houston attending the celebration with his parents. The family was in town visiting Boise State, where the young man was being considered as a running-back for the Broncos football team. After enjoying the Juneteenth festivities, the potential footballer and his parents were so moved they told Trerise IBHM had tipped the scale toward Boise State away from the other schools vying for the athlete's enrollment.
