"You can grow up to be anything you want, if you put your mind to it."
The Hands on Black History Museum is a creative collection of everyday items mixed with historical treasures that have had a profound effect on American Culture.
The museum encourages visitors to explore through reading, listening and creating.
The museum was created by Deborah Nelson Linck, elementary school educator, to help children, fellow educators, and parents explore the many ways African Americans have contributed to the rich history of our country. What started as a small collection has blossomed into a large exhibit of books, videos, music, posters and memorabilia.
