WHO WE ARE

Feed Your Curiosity

Welcome!

Established in 2004, The African American Legacy Project of Northwest Ohio is a 501(c)3 organization who pledges to stimulate the intellectual, socioeconomic and participatory growth in communities wherein African Americans reside.

You are cordially invited to our History Museum, where opportunities exist to expand your knowledge through our exclusive collection and optional tours.


You will be exposed to a part of Toledo's nearly lost histories.  Thanks to a great group of volunteers and a committed community we continue to expand our story.


Our ever-growing institution is dedicated to increasing both our visitors’ knowledge and... our own.


Ultimately, we are in the business of education, and we believe in providing learning experiences for children and educational opportunities for adults.

With our programming and events, as well as our permanent collections, we are sure that everyone will leave The Legacy Project with a new knowledge.
