Mission

To educate the community about individuals who have made significant contributions to African American history, culture and society by hosting and sponsoring social and educational events that promote harmony while increasing the awareness of the uniqueness within the African American culture. To challenge every person to view the diversity in the world around them as an opportunity to explore the past, embrace the present and shape the future.

History
