Our History

MISSION

The LATIBAH Collard Green Museum’s mission is to provide a place where an individual can experience the Life And Times In Black American History through the Museum’s exhibits, installations, and interactive educational programs.

VISION

LATIBAH Collard Green Museum is a history museum that will serve as a center for education on the significant times and events of Black America’s cultural development.  Everyone is encouraged to experience a cross-cultural understanding of the shared traditions,  influences, and contributions.

Educational exposure to these historical developments will be achieved through:

    • creative, interactive programming,
    • docent-led tours of the distinct historic eras visually recreated through the installations,
    • multimedia documentaries, and
    • historic artifacts.
