Destination of the Week: Detroit, MI-Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

Destination of the Week: Detroit, MI-Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History 

Like nearly every other Detroit museum, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History has faced major issues, only to come out stronger.  While some museums focus only on slavery, this museum begins with the rich culture prior to the forced migration and follows the African American experience since the end of the Civil War.  The galleries are well designed and provide a nice transition from subject to subject.   Two special exhibit areas are often included in the admission price.

Note: The ‘caf√©’ is really just a lunchroom with vending machines.  Fortunately there are a number of great restaurants nearby.
