It is a place where all Americans can learn about the richness and diversity of the African American experience, what it means to their lives and how it helped us shape this nation. The museum is a public institution open to all, where anyone is welcome to participate, collaborate, and learn more about African American history and culture. In the words of its founding director, Lonnie g.
