Welcome to The Amistad Center for Art & Culture's web site! This site will provide you with immediate access to information about The Amistad Center and our extraordinary collection, exhibitions and programs.

The Amistad Center offers insightful and exciting opportunities to explore and understand the personalities, events, and creative genius of African Americans who have shaped American history and contributed so much to this country's culture.

Our core activities relate to expanding and preserving the collection, and enabling public access to our collection through changing exhibitions and related programs that educate and entertain people of all ages and backgrounds. Additionally, the Center encourages scholarly access to the rich resources of our collection.

If after visiting our website you need further information please feel free to call us at
