Mission of the Alexandria Black History Museum

In keeping with standard museum practices, each Historic Alexandria property has a Mission Statement. The following describes the mission of the Alexandria Black History Museum.

The mission of the Alexandria Black History Museum is to enrich the lives of Alexandria’s residents and visitors, to foster tolerance and understanding among all cultures and to stimulate appreciation for the diversity of the African American experience.  The Alexandria Black History Museum accomplishes its mission by inspiring the public to explore the integral relationship between Alexandria’s African American heritage and other cultural traditions.
