The Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery (MAAHMG) preserves, records and celebrates the history, art and culture of Blacks in Minnesota through exhibitions, programs and community events.
"MAAHMG offers a crucial historical foundation that is not found elsewhere and takes our understanding of Minnesota history in new and exciting directions."
“The museum promotes literacy by offering a Children's Reading Circle. Not only is literacy important, so is promoting high self-esteem and appreciating our Blackness. As a volunteer reader for the Children's Reading Circle, it's refreshing to read books by African American authors and for all children to see images that reflect diversity.”
“At a time when Minnesota grapples with how to move forward, MAAHMG is leading the way with an equitable and inclusive approach to building community pride, creating opportunities while preserving history and making history of its own.”
“MAAHMG is an important organization. It allows the African American community to control the narrative of their own history. Too often, the African American community perspective is filtered through someone else's beliefs and values. MAAHMG empowers the community like no other organization.”
