Locals showcase African American Art Museum

YAKIMA, Wash.- Members of the community were invited to see black historic artifacts at the African American art museum, Wednesday.

The museum showcased over a hundred pieces of art ranging from slavery artifacts, to modern civil rights displays.

President of the NAACP Reverend Robert Trimble says they showcase black art each year to inform the community about our black history, and to help better shape the future.

"It is an exhibit to let people know that African American people are just as important to history as any other culture in the United States," said Trimble.

If you'd like to donate a cultural artifact, or attend the African American art museum in the future you can contact Reverend Robert Trimble at 509-910-0251.
