The Great Plains Black History Museum is the only African American history museum in Nebraska. Its focus is on American History as told through the lens of African Americans, which makes them uniquely qualified to address the community need for making a once “Invisible History” visible. They provide culturally-enriched exhibits focused on the African American experience in the Great Plains and throughout the United States.
From the Great Plains Black History Museum:
"Our exhibits will provide Americans a look at history told through the lens of African Americans. Our exhibits will help to dispel the misconception that African Americans were not actively involved in the exploration, settlement, and development of America. The Museum was established in 1976, by Mrs. Bertha Calloway. The Great Plains Black History Museum’s mission is, “To preserve, celebrate, and educate all people of the contributions and achievements of African Americans throughout the Great Plains of America.”"
