Virginia Cameron

Virginia Cameron, wife of noted historian and author James Cameron–who founded America’s Black Holocaust Museum–died Tuesday. She was 91. She unwaveringly supported her husband’s life-long effort to tell the story of the nation’s shameful practice of lynching, as well as story of his own defining moment when he almost became a victim of lynching in Marion, Indiana. Mr. Cameron died in 2006.
