Richard Allen Cultural Center and Museum features artifacts from the Buffalo Soldiers and ruins of Bethel AME Church Underground Railroad Site along with memorabilia belonging to notable African-American figures such as General Colin Powell. We also showcase bronze statues of Buffalo Soldiers and an exclusive Black Dignity photo gallery, known as the Everhard Collection, dating back to the late 1800s.
Our mission and purpose is to educate the public about the rich history of African- Americans and their contributions to every phase of American life. We promote a greater awareness of African-American heritage through research and cultural activities that enhance interracial understanding.
Educational programs are also offered through museum exhibits, tours, research opportunities and traveling exhibits for the general public. We also have a year-round tutoring program available for any student who needs the service. We have helped over 350 children improve their academic skills.
