About Us

Created in 1988 with the following Missions:

Focus on the heritage of Blacks from their origin through the Middle passage, the salvation the Underground Railroad provided, the struggle for civil rights, and their accomplishments in the United States and African Diaspora;

Bridge the information gap and inform all ethnic groups about the advantages of cross-cultural communication and diversity, as expressed through history, the arts and the humanities;

Highlight the heritage of the African American families for whom Montgomery County is home; and

Display the rich and significant contributions that Africans and African Americans have made in the building of America.
