Black History comes to life at this Richmond museum. – What to Expect
The Black History Museum and Cultural Center seeks to inspire pride and understanding through such exhibits as "Oliver Hill Sr., Esq.: Humanitarian, Civil Rights Attorney, Trailblazer," which celebrates the life of the local lawyer recently awarded the Medal of Freedom; "African American Textile Wall Hangings" and "African Artifacts," which celebrate African roots and trace its influence in the arts.
The museum building itself is a local treasure-an 1832 Greek Revival building located in Jackson Ward, historically one of the major African-American communities on the East Coast.

"The hidden Jewel of Richmond" – it's hard to find this place,but all i had to do was call. a friendly voice then answered giving me great directions. when i got there i learned about the history of a beautiful neighborhood going through a major renovation. i was amazed by this and had to know more. the friendly staff was helpful in giving me enough info from where to go to how the city is growing.
