In 1987, about 6,000 objects relating to Black history and culture in the United States were acquired by the newly formed Amistad Foundation. Housed and displayed at the Wadsworth, the collection rapidly expanded and transformed into The Amistad Center for Art & Culture documenting the African American experience.
Join a fascinating discussion about the inception of The Amistad Center and the breadth of its collections ranging from art, to historical documents, artifacts, and a vast collection of books.
