CLEVELAND, Ohio – Helen Forbes Fields, a trustee at the Cleveland Museum of Art, said that she recently saw a guard turn away a young black man when he pushed open the North Lobby doors as the museum was about to close.

Forbes Fields, who is black, said she feared that the abrupt tone in the guard’s voice might have made the visitor feel unwanted. So she told the young man he would be welcome to come back the next day at 10 a.m.
