The True Black History Museum will be on display from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 22 in the Nebraska Union’s Colonial Room.
The True Black History Museum is a traveling exhibition with more than 1,000 artifacts dating from the late 1600s to the 21st century, including original documents from historic figures such as Booker T. Washington, Mary McLeod Bethune, George Washington Carver, Rosa Parks, Frederick Douglass, Angela Davis and Barack Obama.
The museum, founded in 2010 by Fred J. Saffold III, was established to preserve black history and to educate others on the many contributions African-Americans have made to humanity. Saffold will be on hand Feb. 22 to engage with visitors.
The exhibition, sponsored by UPC Nebraska, is free and open to the public.
