   To unearth, collect, protect, preserve, and promote the 

      history of Black Houston County.

•    To identify and make known the unsung Heroes and 

      Sheroes, as well as, identifying places and locations where 

      our ancestors sacrificed so much in a land that denied them

      their birth given right.

•    To educate the public of all ages, present and future 

      generations, about the contributions of the enslaved and 

      their descendants through publications, displays, and 

      historical markers.

“I tried to Keep Quiet,

But My Ancestors Won’t Let Me”

When we learn of them...

"Our senses, restor​e, never to be the same,

whisper to us...

They existed. They existed.

We can be. Be and be better.

For they existed".

Maya Angelou
