Buffalo Black Achievers Museum


Buffalo’s rise, decline and resurgence has been influenced for generations by the contributions of African Americans. From the city’s trading-post origins through its time as a stop on the Underground Railroad, into the Civil War and through the days of Jim Crow to the Civil Rights movement, black Americans have played a crucial but often under-recognized part in the city’s history. The Buffalo Black Achievers Museum showcases those who helped build Buffalo – past, present and future.
