a must see 1/2/2008

The museum has moved to approx. the 4100 blk. of Central ave. at the historical Dunbar Hotel in L.A. Brian is currently looking for a permanent building for his collection and younger people to help maintain the collection. What's good, is you can now get more of Brian's time to learn about the city of L.A. AND the history of Black people everywhere.\r The collection has over 3,000 pieces. African mask, statues,jewelry, drums, fabrics,furnatures and then there are the chains used on captured people who became slaves. African and African-American memorabilia from the 1600's to the 1970's. He has original items that he has collected for 50 years. The stories of how he found the pieces and the people who sold or even gave items to him are really interesting. Brain's personality varies by who he is talking to. He loves students of all ages but he won't have much time for pretentious people. This place will definitely inspire thought and even action in most people who experience it. more

Always enlightening 5/20/2002

One of the best place in Los Angeles to gain an understanding of what marginalized means in context with American ideology. A place to learn about sorrowful historic events and then rejoice in advancements. Take your children. more
