One museum was founded to tell the story of "Black Cowboys." Another took over 100 years from original vision to final completion. Yet another in Georgia was inspired by former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young.

A famous African American museum still sits in the last building standing of a housing development that was dedicated in 1937 by first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

Black coal miners who worked in the Appalachian mountain area are saluted in one state’s people of color museum tribute.

This is one valuable resource that will keep you up-to-date about some of the best black history museums around the USA. Several new ones are being built to continue to celebrate all of the contributions made locally and nationally by people of color in the USA.

Really disjointed that this app ONLY has info on museums in the USA. The USA is NOT the world, and they're is so much more to African and Black History than this.

Thanks for your comments. Did you read the app description? We delivered exactly what was described. There are plenty of other apps out there that have what you seek. We wanted to focus only on the USA, and only on it's Black history museum resources.

Hopefully this generation (Generation X) will learn the importance of knowing the history of people and history in hopes the knowledge will make them proud of their heritage!
