  • This place hurt my heart and inspired me at the same time. Such an important part of history. It's very unfortunate that the area is not maintained at the highest level. But I appreciate the effort...  more »
  • The owner and Civil Rights activist Annie Pearl Avery could covered a lot of information in regards to Black History. Movies, statues, flags and even mannequins told the story of our past. She even knew my Great Uncle James Hunter ARMSTRONG. She called him the Flag Man. Because he was the one that carried the American flag across Pettis Bridge on Bloody Sunday.
  • Needs work. Damp, warm. A depressing museum. Woman who gave intro. Very knoledgeablr
