The San Francisco African American Historical/Cultural Society is a museum that is fully dedicated to educating the public about the African American community and history of San Francisco. This museum is a great resource for students, adults, film makers, authors, community groups, public officials, educators, and corporations who are interested in learning more about the African American culture and history.
It is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Fillmore District. It contains a complete library and resource center with more than 5,000 books available on various African American topics. More than 500 of these books that are in the resource center are rare or hard to find books. There is also a listening center where visitors can listen to audio tapes of some of the great theologians of the 20th century.
This museum is a membership based facility. This means that it depends on the funds earned through membership sales to maintain the museum. Members of this museum enjoy many benefits such as free admission, reduced rates to special events at the museum, and much more.
The museum also has a very interactive website at http://www.sfblackhistory.org/OurMission.asp. At this site, visitors can read the mission statement, shop in the online store, view photos of the galleries, chat, blog, make donations, and more.
