The Kansas African American Museum has launches a $6 million campaign as a year-long celebration of its 25th year funding a new home for the museum. We've already raised $2.8 million!

“We will use our extensive Collection with expanded and original programming to create understanding, inclusion, and opportunity,” said Sherman.

“As the place where individuals and communities learn about and experience the Kansas African American story, TKAAM will focus on the individual and collective stories of Kansas African Americans to engage museum visitors, program participants, and children.

The new location at 201 North Main in downtown Wichita, will provide twice the space for programming, exhibition, and research compared to TKAAM’s current home.
