African American Museums

This page was created with the intent of showcasing the often, overlooked contributions that people of African descent have played in creating the society in which we live in today. 

The institutions and organizations listed on this page have historically captured the impact that our contributions have made on life and life has made on us.

Our contributions have often devalued but ver significant, nonetheless.

This page is dedicated to listing the Museums, Cultural Heritage Institutions and Historic Sites whose primary focus is preserving and showcasing the history and culture of people of  African descent throughout North America.

The first African American Museum was established in 1868 in Hampton, Virginia. Approximately 30 Museums devoted to African American history and culture were established by 1950, primarily at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Some of the more significant collections were established at Bennett College in Greensboro, North Carolina; Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee; Howard University in Washington, D.C.; Lincoln University in Chester County, Pennsylvania; Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland; Talladega College in Talladega, Alabama and Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, Alabama.

Additional local historical groups, history clubs and reading groups in African-American communities also collected and displayed African-American cultural artifacts.

The first independent, nonprofit museums in the United States were the African American Museum in Cleveland, Ohio (founded in 1956), the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago, Illinois (founded in 1960), and the International Afro American Museum in Detroit, Michigan (founded in 1965; now known as the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History). The Civil Rights Movement led to numerous local African-American museums. being founded. By 1991, there were about 150 African-American museums in 37 states.

As of 2010 the largest African-American museum in the United States was the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, Michigan. It is believed that it will be exceeded in size by the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African American History and Culture when completed in 2015.

Please visit us regularly as we continue to update this page with additional Museums and Historical sites. For additional information about African American Museums in the United States, visit Wikipedia for the orginial article and List of African American Museums.
