Fodor's Review

Focusing on the history of African Americans in the Northwest, this museum tells stories through a diverse collection of well-curated and insightful photos, artifacts, and compelling narratives. Past exhibits have included "Xenobia Bailey: The Aesthetics of Funk," and "The Test: The Tuskegee Project," focusing on the first African American aviation units in the U.S. military to serve in combat. One gallery is dedicated to the work of local artists.
