Who Are We?
The African-American Cultural Arts & History Center (AACAHC) is the brain child of Jane Sellars. A native of Alamance County, Ms. Sellars discovered a rich, local heritage of African American culture when she embarked on her own personal genealogical journey.
Joined by a board of individuals with diverse backgrounds, talents & skills, a collective vision has emerged that will preserve African American culture and history, specific to Alamance County, for generations to come.
What Do We Do?
AACAHC actively collects and preserves Alamance County's African-American history in many varied forms; cultural, architectural, artistic, familial, industrial, commercial, and generational. Many individuals who have made a lasting impact on the African-American the community have been identified and documented. Unearthing their stories and formats are essential to AACAHC's mission. As a museum and cultural site, the AACAHC is determined to bring to the community all the benefits associated with heritage tourism and a public an institution devoted to education and preservation.
One thing Jane Sellars could not get in her lifetime was a building for the center to house and display the thousands of pieces of local history she wanted the world to see. AACAHC has established a Building Fund in her honor. We are soliciting contributions of any amount to be put toward this project. We are seeking to raise an money in order to lease or purchase a building as a new and permanent home for the AACAHC. Your donation is tax deductible in the USA to the fullest extent of the law. Thank you.
