JOIN US FOR FREEDOM FRIDAYS

On Freedom Fridays  we celebrate African American culture through music, food, and libation.  Typically held at the museum, we are now hosting virtual concerts on Facebook Live the first Friday of the month from 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM.  Although the concert is free, we ask you to please make a donation that is at least comparable to the ticket price of a live concert of this caliber. However, all donations regardless of amount are needed and greatly appreciated. Proceeds benefit two worthy organizations – the Black History Museum and Trumpeting for the Arts as they keep Black heritage alive for all of us.
