Reflections In Black Museum

Reflection in Black Museum - "African American History on Wheels" is several travelling exhibits that tour the USA bringing information about the rich history of African American culture.

Originally founded in 1998 as Reflection in Black Inc. a for-profit organization, it was dissolved in 2001 and became not- for-profit organization called Reflections in Black Museum Inc. The museum boasts a unique collection of multi-media presentations, rare artifacts, African Art, sculptures, paintings, musical recordings, coin and stamp collections and historical articles from Black newspapers. The organization is dedicated to preserving, conserving and accurately interpreting information covering African American inventions and Inventors, African American Musicians and other historic facts relating to African American history.The museum was founded by Clifton Brown, who discovered that there is a lack of knowledge about the contributions of African American Inventors, Inventions Innovations and Black History in general.

Through educational workshops, special events and unique partnerships with professional organizations and educational institutions, the Museum places the African American experience in an accurate social, cultural and historical perspective.

The museum travels throughout the United States displaying its exhibits in many local area schools and at community events.

One of the exhibits is called Music Hall Of Fame: From "Race Music" to "Rock and Roll" and Beyond. You can download a brochure here.
