Once the cornerstone of Wichita’s vibrant Black Community, The Kansas African American Museum, shares the history, culture and legacy of African Americans. Formerly the venerable Calvary Baptist Church, the congregation’s leaders worked nights and weekends to build the church in 1917. The community surrounding the church featured restaurants, businesses, and homes. It hosted Jazz artists, Negro League baseball stars, and included the birth home of Hattie McDaniel—the first African American Academy Award winner and the home of Loren Miller, lawyer for McDaniel and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The Kansas African American Museum provides a culminating experience of people, pride and place. We celebrate the richness of the African American experience and its indelible influence on American culture, tradition and language that continue to define our country today. We are more than the housing of collections. We provide a space to explore, reflect and remind us all of our interconnectedness.
