Reviews for Charles H Wright Museum-Afrcn

Under its stunning domed roof, this museum traces African-American history from slavery to the present. – In Short
Museum designers cleverly structured this facility so that the most disturbing images marking the harshest chapters of African-American history can be easily seen by adults, but not children. Rare photos, dramatic newsreels, movies, videos and music enhance the exhibits. Listen to Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech, then move over a few feet and hear Diana Ross and other Motown performers belt out the music that put Detroit on the map.

Excellence in Detroit – The Museum of Africn American History is a "must" for anyone visiting the city of Detroit. It enriches all who visit, regardless of race or ethnic background.

Pride of Detroit – The Charles H. Wright MAAH is the pride of Detroit. It is a fitting structure to house the history of the 85% of Detroit's population that has an African heritage. The nobility of its chareg is reflected in the massive carved doors which noisily swing open to admit the visitor. Upon ascending the stairs one enters the magnificient glass domed area. Enlaid in the floor are plaques honoring African-American heroes. There is space for additional honoree. The plagues are encircled by a painted motif which includes cotton bolls to represent the effects of slavery on the life of African Americans. This imposing area is just one facet of the museum which contains a theatre and exhibition areas. No one should miss this moving encapsulation of blacks in The United States with its emphasis on Detroit and Michigan.
