California African American Museum

The California African American Museum provides insight into many different facets of African American history. The exhibition chronicles the African American journey from the west coast of Africa to the west coast of America. It examines artifacts from West Africa that demonstrate the art, history and culture of the regions; African Americans’ Southern legacy, the Great Migration West and provides insights into the unique art and cultural contributions that African Americans made in opening the Western frontier. Other exhibits chronicle various aspects of 20th century African American life and history.
