"Genealogical Exhibits"

The African American Museum had humble beginnings in 1968, as an exhibit of artifacts from the private collection of Professor Leroy Ramsey, from the Nassau Community College. Though originally intended to be a temporary set up, the exhibit was retained due to its popularity among the locals. Numerous additions to the collections led to it acquiring a separate space, and later becoming a full-fledged museum. The museum is affiliated with the African Atlantic Genealogical Society, and is host to their numerous programs and activities.
