The African American Cultural & Historical Museum of Washtenaw County
Sunday February 23, 2020: 2:00pm to 3:30pm
Westgate Branch: West Side Room
The African American Cultural & Historical Museum of Washtenaw County, dedicated to telling the stories of the history and culture of African Americans in Washtenaw County, began as a museum without walls in 1996.
In 2020, after many years of hard work & planning, this vital community resource will open its doors as a brick & mortar museum located in an historic neighborhood. The new location, at 1528 Pontiac Trail in Ann Arbor, is surrounded by more than six Underground Railroad sites that are on the Museum’s Underground Railroad tours and is minutes away from other houses, parks, and buildings that have significance for the community.
Join us for this special presentation as Joyce M. Hunter, the Museum's President/CEO, discusses the new museum and exciting plans for its future. Information will also be shared about the Grand Opening and how the community can participate in this historical event.
This event is in partnership with the African American Cultural and Historical Museum of Washtenaw County.
