The Brazos Valley African American Museum is a wonderful asset in our community, highlighting the struggles & triumphs of Black & African American individuals. Those stories represented range from the enslaved people brought to our area in the 1800s and the tragedies they were dealt & overcame, to Civil Rights heroes past & present, as well as everyday citizens of the Brazos Valley who left their mark on our community.

These stories are told through permanent & rotating exhibitions featuring artifacts, first-hand accounts, and artwork from those various time periods, as well as contemporary Black artists.

Their newest exhibition, “Southern Champions of Civil Rights,” will be on display through February 28, 2021. Stop by to see & learn from this moving exhibition, along with emotional, touching, and informative permanent displays.
