The Kansas African American Museum provides a culminating experience of people, pride and place. We celebrate the richness of the African American experience and its indelible influence on American culture, tradition and language that continue to define our country today. We are more than the housing of collections. We provide a space to explore, reflect and remind us all of our interconnectedness.
In this second installation of “Defining Black Wichita,” the museum explores the community’s shift from “The Black Belt” downtown to the “Heart of the Community,” the Historic McAdams/Dunbar neighborhood, beginning at 9th and Cleveland streets and extending to North Grove and Hillside.
