  • I experienced Jim Crow as a teen, when visiting Texas with my mother. At the Museum I learned how the people of Savannah boycotted certain stores adhering to Jim Crow laws of the time, for 15 months. An incredible sacrifice. So much information never televised. A must see for everyone!
  • What an experience!!! We learned so much about the African American contributions to Savannah and how all our lives were impacted. Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable!!
