Family Heritage House Museum
The Family Heritage House Museum has one main goal to the bring to the public's attention. That goal is to help educate children and adults of all ages on their rich family history. The museum wants to teach the people of the importance of their ancestors and to help them find their place in the world we live in. Heritage is something that everyone should know because it can strengthen a family and give them an understanding of their history.
The African American community plays a very important role in the museum. There is an exhibit called "Kin Killin' Kin" by artist James Pate, which explores the history of violence that has happened in the African American. community. The exhibit highlights the concern of youth violence in the African American community. The Ku Klux Klan initials weaved into the exhibit to bring different hardship and terrorism to the forefront as well.
