“People are often times really emotional when they come out of the Museum. Lots of times there are tears in people’s eyes. Especially when they come out of the genealogy exhibit. You can track your history and your family roots there. I remember one time, a woman came out- she was in tears. She had just found out she was part black. It was really emotional for her and us. This is a really important place for people to come and learn about the people, the movement and what is going on today.” Standing in front of the Center’s large collection of books on slavery, the underground railroad and black history open to the public.
