Our mission is to promote, preserve, display, collect and honor the lives, culture, history and accomplishments of African, African American, and connected peoples in the Greater Grand Rapids Michigan community.

"We are not makers of history, We are made by history"

Martin Luther King Jr.

    Come be inspired

What do all of these people have in common?


Proposed opening date for your own museum that tells your stories. We want families, schools, researchers and individuals to know the global impact of African Americans from our city.


Come inspire others

Early planning, financing campaign, pursue a location and start construction. Share your experience, knowledge and skills with other creative minds in these efforts.
