A is for Africa

Ongoing Exhibition

Twenty-six interactive stations make up a three-dimensional "dictionary" designed for children from pre-school through fourth grade in A is for Africa.  Organized by the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, this long-term installation introduces young visitors to an array of interesting persons, places, events, ideas, foods and objects important to understanding the histories and cultures of Africa.  While focusing on young children, those who are older will certainly find this activity enjoyable, engaging and educational.


Sponsored by The Skillman Foundation and Target Corporation.  This exhibition is supported by the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
