The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage and African American Heritage Foundation are committed to presenting and preserving the contributions of African Americans to the history of Kentucky and Louisville. The site was originally a series of trolley barns.
Located at Muhammad Ali Blvd. in Louisville, the center serves several functions. It is an archive for the traditions and accomplishments of African Americans. Exhibits also show aspects of African culture such as an exhibit on King Tutankhamen of Egypt in 2010. It is an educational facility, providing information for guests. The center is also a performance space, allowing for performers such as authors, musicians, singers, and dancers.
The center is a continued work in progress, as the center counties to expand. When complete, the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage will be a vital place in preservation and education of the culture of an important part of Louisville and Kentucky's history,.
