If You Miss this You will be SORRY!
Feb 2020
Stopped by a small old school walking into the past of black history. We were met a a young man by the name of Jack Hadley who interestingly enough was the name on the building. The greeting was great and when he turned on the lights, the museum went forever. Four rooms of artifax from local schoold scholars to members of government to NFL football players and so on. Hundreds of photos from the past and some relating to the slavery at plantations. Jack spent more than an hour with us and we just ran out of time for our travelling schedule. You name it, I was there. This is a MUST SEE museum. My hat is off to Jack, JaMarcus and his Board for such a wonderful museum. Government must contribute to this historical museum $$ and with many ways of advertizing same. Many thanks to all!

What one man can do!

This museum, recommended to me by the fine guide on the Taste of Thomasville, was completely worthwhile. Jack Hadley, who first put together a Black History exhibit with his son, has now devoted the rest of his life to his fascinating collection. With the collection itself plus him you have as sn irresistible combination. Never doubt what a difference one man can make.

A Thomasville gem!

Mr. Hadley has an incredible collection, and everyone who has a chance should go to see it. The museum is really like stepping back in time, and you can lose yourself in all the artifacts for a long time.

Love This Museum
Apr 2018 • Friends
I was totally impressed and in awe of the artifacts and history that this museum holds. And each time I visit, there is something new to learn and discover. I learned so much in one day when I visited the museum.

Am Informative Experience for ALL (regardless of race)

It is so important that we show respect for all cultures to discover that we are more alike than different, The curator has worked hard to create a diverse and well-researched collection of information on local and regional historical figures.

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.

WOW - a must see
Oct 2017 • Solo
This is really a fabulous collection! Read Vernal S's review from October 2015 - not sure I can say much more..... Mr. Hadley has put together a collection of local, locals-gone-national, and national black history and organized it well. I'm not sure you could have a better tour guide than Mr. Hadley, as his passion and knowledge draw you in to people you might never have heard of, but who typify the struggle and history since the 1800's. I had the option of having Mr. Hadley guide me, or going on my own, but I'm white and not a local; I needed a guide! I spent over 2 hours on the tour, and still know that I barely touched the surface of this collection. I'll go back and spend more time reading and looking......and hopefully get to spend a bit more time with Mr. Jack Hadley.
Even if you only have an hour or so, it's really a must see on your visit to Thomasville. I can imagine it would be fabulous for school kids, especially if Mr. Hadley is giving the tour.

An Amazing Collection!

I'll start by saying we are white. We had some family items to contribute to Mr. Hadley and he gladly received them. He gave us a personal tour of the museum, which is quite enlightening.
