After several attempts we finally connected and are we glad we did. Ms. Fanny Brown is amazing and museum is very well done and filled with relative history and artifacts of black history. Very impactful. So glad we went.

A small but dedicated group of individuals made this museum and cultural center happen, and it is a good thing they did. How many people who go out on the town to learn the shag, SC's state dance, started in a black club where people...More

Unfortunately this museum does not have a lot to offer. Small and not kept up very well. There is really just one room used as a museum. The other parts are used for student tutoring.
