I know I'm new, but why is there no Black History Museum in this city?

^^Thanks for the info. I will go check it all out. I have to say I'm really surprised that more isn't made from all this. If Norman Studios, La Villa, and Durkeeville teamed up I'd guess there might be a bigger picture or more of a draw.

I agree. There has to be something that can be done to bring more attention. The Clara White mission also has a tour and somewhat of a museum also. (which a just found out recently) Things of this nature are resources that should be leveraged. Im not sure if its lack of effective marketing or what, but more definately needs to be done. Especially since this stuff is pretty much downtown.
