  • The CHW-MAAH provides every essential need of cultural knowledge and enrichment that relates to the Black community. Their exhibitions, screenings, lectures, special events and programs address life issues from historic, modern and contemporary perspectives.
  • It was my first time going and was extremely moving to me. To also relive my history was very eye opening
  • African Americans did more then just go through Slavery we invented , created and help shape this counrty for the better, all we got from this museum was sad stories.Our history is more then that! Will not return until something is done about this. Of course this is what they give us, so pitiful SMH
  • I went here as a work outing with 50 of my colleagues. This experience was truly unforgettable. The We Still Rise exhibit was beyond fascinating. We had a guided tour with a guide by the name of Jonathan Jones. Jonathan was absolutely amazing. We brought the exhibit to life every step of the way and would go in and out of multiple characters to bring you information an a truly terrific way. He was not only extremely entertaining but also very informative and knowledgeable. This was amazing and we cannot stop talking about our experience here. I highly recommend visiting this museum and if you take a guided tour, ask for Johnathan.
  • Had a guided tour, and it helped me understand the history of Africa, slavery, race relations, and so much more. Our guide was outstanding handling our group of 40+. Reasonably priced admission. A must for everyone.
