WELCOME TO AFRICAN AMERICAN LEGACY PROJECT OF NORTHWEST OHIO
Founded in 2004, The African American Legacy Project of Northwest Ohio believes we help shape the future. Through research and preservation we document the past and present, and share our work with the widest audiences possible. We invite you to see things anew through the lens of our continually growing collections. You’ll learn more than you ever thought possible. Sometimes we amaze ourselves!
