#1: The Northeast

This region has a cool mix of historic meets artsy museums, like Boston’s Museum of African American History, Harlem’s Studio Museum, and The City Of Brotherly Love’s African American Museum of Philadelphia!

#2: The Midwest/Central Region 

Missouri’s Kansas City sports the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the American Jazz Museum, while Ohio honors our ancestors with the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Denver, CO has the Black American West Museum, celebrating Black pioneers.

#3: The South

You already know the South’s museums are poppin’! Whether you hit up Mississippi’s Medgar Evers Home Museum, Texas’ Buffalo Soldiers National Museum, or Alabama’s deeply moving Legacy Museum,  you will leave feeling full!

#4: The West

Black History goes from coast to coast, and the West Coast is home to a few pivotal Museums like San Francisco’s Museum Of The African Diaspora, Seattle’s Northwest African American Museum, and Oakland’s recent pop-up “mini-museum,” a 1,000-square-foot apartment documenting the history of the Black Panther Party.

Visiting and sending donations to these institutions is crucial to ensure the survival and preservation of our history, which white supremacy continues to violently erase. Museums centering our heritage uplifts our past and present while informing our liberated futures. So stop waiting – plan your trip!
