The Boundary Breaking Brazos Valley African American Museum

May 10, 2018

If you’ve ever been to a museum of Texas history or if you happened to grow up going to school in our great state, you’ll know that the story of Texas is most often told as the story of people with European, Mexican, or Native American heritage. Much less often discussed is the important role African Americans have played in that story. Luckily for us, in 2006 the Brazos Valley African American Museum was established to help educate Texans about the historical and cultural contributions of persons of African descent here in Brazos Valley. The museum, which was built on the same grounds where one of the valley’s black schoolhouses once stood during the age of segregation, gives you the chance to view historically significant art and artifacts, study genealogical records, and enjoy lectures and performances by area historians and artists. In addition, the museum’s continually growing library provides a range of research materials appropriate for adults and children.

Address: 500 East Pruitt St., Bryan, Texas 77803
