Fayette African American Museum

Fayette African American Museum

Located in a historical landmark, the Fayette museum showcases African American history and culture through two levels of displays and exhibits. Level one represents more than 100 years of African American history on Fayette Street. The exhibits, "Walking down the street what do you see?" and "Where we were...where are we today?" show 2 miles of road along Fayette Steet. While traveling the 2 mile stretch, visitors can see black owned businesses, doctor's offices, retail stores, and other historic buildings. Level two shows black history on the local and national levels. Photo displays of events, educators, doctors, businesses, churches are on display for visitors' enjoyment.

We hope you enjoy our work.
