  • 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.
  • Girl's Night Out is spent at Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers. Enlightenment, awareness, truth, real, honesty, heartwarming, humbling, life in its true essence. Check it out, you will leave a new you. And done with LOVE.
  • I'll admit, this place was impressive. I love that you can go at your own pace, because it took me forever to get through the exhibits.
  • Good place to take the family. My wife and I went during the African World Festival, Al B. Sure preformed.
  • Amazing experience. I smiled and cried and smile some more. Wonderful place to take children to learn their African American History.
