It’s definitely an “eye opening experience.” This is a TRIP through history!
It will remind some.. and educate others about you the trials and tribulations African American’s have endured… and survived!
Being taken from our native land in Africa…making it through the middle passage, Bondage….and still remaing “focused” and strong enough… to continue the Fight for FREEDOM & EQUALITY!
Seeing the images in the museum make uus feel PROUD of WHO WE ARE!!!
Our hair… and the history of those who made it Easier for us to manage… and maintain.
The NEW generations of Madam C.J Walker… have updated some of her hair care products from the past. The NEW Hair care merchandise can be purchased in Sephora stores…
Below are photos depicting the EARLY days of the “BEAUTY PARLOR “ experience for women of color.
The museum is FILLED with many other success stories like this one…

These are a few collectible items on display..
Below… is a “pledge” hat worn by perspective women looking to be Uniates into the sisterhood…
Below… I’m checking out photos of my sorority sisters “stepping!”
Stepping is an artistic form of expression…with song, dance and a special routine of choreographed moves.. that sororities & fraternities do in celebration… and HONOR of the GREEK LETTERED organizations..
This routines often include history of the organizations… and descriptive details about the “image” of the groups.
The museum has an interactive exhibit… to teach visitors how to do some signature moves… that help make up snazzy “Stepping” routines.
Here’s a close up look at MY sorority sisters… during the 80’s.. This photo comes from a stepping exhibition at a local chapter… of a college based in the south.
….and this is a scene from a large screen where guests are directed to stand in a square… and learn a routine from watching “Step Masters.”
Never judge ANY MAN or WOMAN unless you’ve walked a mile in ~THEIR~ shoes!
Walking miles in this museum will surely give you a better perspective of the BLACK experience!
African Americans consistently make efforts to STEP into “GREATNESS..”
Our people remain FAITHFUL that better days are down the road! So we KEEP IT MOVING!!!
Can we DO BETTER in the FUTURE …and NOT remain BITTER from all the trials… and tribulations from the PAST???
🔴🔵 YES.WE.CAN!!!! 🔵🔴
Now step out in FAITH… and WALK in that TRUTH!!!
