OVERVIEW

placeholder

LATIBAH Collard Green Museum is a history museum comprised of a collection of installations, exhibits, artifacts of fine art and cultural history. The museum covers key historical eras from the enslavement of Africans through the American systems of slavery, reconstruction, and integration to the 44th President of the U.S.A.

L.A.T.I.B.A.H. is an acronym that stands for “Life And Times In Black American History.” This historical challenge is illustrated through ‘freeze-frames’ of events that embraced periods of institutional slavery, segregation, inequality, social injustice, and racism as well as periods of freedom, civil liberties, integration, education and equal employment opportunities. It reflects a period of culture and cultural adaptation through assimilation and acculturation.

 

Everybody's home

The museum’s collection of life-size installations and exhibits realistically and symbolically capture those historical events and periods in time that had a significant impact on cultural changes (development, shifts, impacts, influences). Additionally, the museum shows African-Americans meeting these major challenges with impressive adaptive vitality, durability and achievements. They were not simply surviving, but more importantly, unconsciously, developing a process, which carries with it the assumption and insurance of survival.
