We did not know what we would find. Jack Hadley introduced himself and explained why he started the museum, which explained it even more. Promised we will try to send information about the slave trade from England.

This is a very informative Black History Museum that gives you a wild review of local and national black history of the United States.

This was part of my family reunion activities for the day and I am so glad I did not skip it. This visit was awesome to say the least. Mr. Hadley was amusing and very informative. This museum is loaded. Love it!

We visited Jack's museum - but he was on vacation. What a shame as I'm sure he would have lent some additional information to the displays. He captures several areas of Black culture in different sections of the museum, including sports, entertainment, military, and of...More
