AAHM&CC 35TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!
CLICK HERE TO WATCH A NARRATED PRESENTATION OF THE SLIDESHOW BELOW
On November 23rd, 2020, the African American Heritage Museum & Cultural Center literally celebrated 12,784 continuous days of protest against the overfunding of police and the underfunding of positive community institutions!
On that day, from 1-6pm, the people gathered for a safe socially distanced celebration of our Founder’s Day!
Watch our video of the event to learn about the true history of the occupation of the Colman School from the freedom fighters who began the struggle over three decades ago.
The people enjoyed free screen printing, live performances, light refreshments, and HOLIDAY TREES FOR PEACE!https://africanamericanheritagemuseumandculturalcenter.org/2020/11/23/african-aamerican-heritage-museum-and-cultural-center-to-host-the-annual-trees-for-peace-fundraiser-opening-on-the-35th-founders-day-november-23d/
