  • Ms Leona Tate is there for questions, care, information, growth, education, and so much more. It was important to me to come here, though the exhibits at times were heart breaking. The photos displays were beautifully accompanied with captions and music telling a complete history of what happened. I particularly appreciated the recorded interviews of residents, putting everything in the photos into context. The resilience, not only devastation, of this community is what was honored. It was a blessing to witness. And my compliments to Ms. Leona Tate for her work, and my thanks to her for her comments and wisdom. Beautiful space. We will be back to see everything else in store, as the work here isn't growing.
  • From the very first caption that I read regarding the Ward's history, I was locked in for an unbelievable experience. The story is not only told with power, but with precision. Everything is organized and easy to understand. Don't judge the book by the cover. If I had, I'd have missed a life changing experience.
