Online Academy
The Academy features a series of people offering their expertise and sharing their insights on different subjects within the field of material culture. Collectors, preservers, scholars, and educators conduct virtual lectures, workshops, and demonstrations for your enjoyment and education. We want you to use the information presented here along with the database of artifacts in the museum's permanent collection to think about what role material culture plays in helping us to come to a better understanding of the African American historical and cultural experience.
