Join us as we celebrate and recognize Women of Color during National Women's Month. Each week we will highlight local Plant City area women of color who have had profound impact in the community.

National Diversity Month

Diversity includes a wide spectrum of people, places and moments in time. Let's celebrate April and have a broad discussion on diversity. Political Forums will be held so residents can meet and get to know those who seek to represent this diverse community.

Let the Story tell the story

The museum strives to accurately preserve, interpret, and present Plant City’s African American history from an African American perspective. Exhibits, artifacts, storyboards, oral history, and written documents help both American and international visitors better understand the experiences of African Americans during the segregation era.
