African American Journey West
Permanent Collection

The California African American Museum is forging a new trail documenting the African American contribution to the settlement of the West. It’s a pioneering effort. The exhibition chronicles the African American journey from the west coast of Africa to the west coast of America. It examines artifacts from West Africa that demonstrate the art, history and culture of the regions; African Americans’ Southern legacy, the Great Migration West and provides insights into the unique art and cultural contributions that African Americans made in opening the Western frontier.
