Would not consider it a Museum at all. Paid for a tour, however no one was even available for this tour. Honestly a hall with paintings and people were allowed to walk in freely anyways so I paid for no reason.

About Sojourner Truth African American Museum

Shona McDaniels' vision for a museum was clear: to create "an institution to preserve Black history and celebrate the accomplishments of African American people and their legacy." She began by naming it after the celebrated civil rights activist Sojourner Truth, a former slave who spent her life fighting for the abolition of slavery and the emancipation of women. Read on to learn more about the museum and its inspirations:

  • The History: The museum began in 1996 as The Sojourner Truth Multicultural Arts Development Center, an educational center where young people could explore their creativity in a safe and welcoming environment. From there, it continued to grow, eventually earning official museum status from the city of Sacramento in 2008.
  • Permanent Exhibit: Sankofa: A Journey Through African American History and Culture, which leads visitors on a visual exploration via vivid wall murals.
  • Community Events: The museum holds gatherings and workshops throughout the year, such as the African Trade Bead workshops, Girls Knit 2 Prevent workshops, traditional cooking workshops for youth, and Sojourner Truth tea parties.
  • Awards: Multiple, including the California State Fair Award of Merit, the Smithsonian Museum Freedom Sisters Artist Award, and the Sacramento County Hero Human Service Award.
