Welcome to LATIBAH Collard Green Museum

Unfortunately we are currently without a physical location

Nevertheless, LATIBAH has an extraordinary exhibit entitled, “The Great Escape, that focuses on the Underground Railroad, displayed at the Mosaic Lawn in the Historic West End District.  Located at 1635 W. Trade Street – Charlotte, NC 28208, LATIBAH’s signature exhibit is open for public viewing from 10am to dusk. In addition, interactive and engaging group guided tours are offered upon request.

LATIBAH welcomes all to visit this beautiful and emotionally moving exhibit that gives an intimate portrayal of a time when a determined and diverse secret community risked their lives for the Greatest Escape ever, the Underground Railroad.   If you would like to schedule a group guided tour of the “The Great Escape”  please contact LATIBAH at 704.737.8097 or  tafeimstero@gmail.com.

We also offer awesome outreach programs educating our community about the Life And Times In Black American History (LATIBAH)!  For additional information visit LATIBAH Outreach Programs.

Once the Museum is physically re-established It will be comprised of a collection of installations, exhibits, artifacts of fine art and cultural history.  You will be captivated as you view the life-size, ‘slices of life’ that depict African-Americans as they have strived for survival in a developing “civil” society.

Inspirational and emotionally moving the Museum will provide visual representations that cover centuries of significant historical eras from the enslavement of Africans through the American systems of slavery, reconstruction, and integration to the 44th President of the United States of America.
