Whereas, most blogs sites intrigue you with their fancy slide shows just to bait you. I am going to get right to these 16 wonderfully historic museums that are part of our culture.

Growing up in the Midwest, St Louis to me was museum capital.

Some of these places have been around longer than we have been in the bassinets. And it is a treasure to see so much support for them as we continue on with the 21st century.

Black History to for me is celebrated 365 days in a year, yet they want to take credit for February.

So, here it goes for February, the 16 museums that are diligently celebrating Black History month.

  1. Northwest African-American Museum in Seattle, WA
  2. California African American Museum in Los Angeles, CA
  3. The DuSable Museum in Chicago, IL
  4. National A. Phillip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum in Chicago, IL
