African American Museum of Nassau County [NY]

The African American Museum of Nassau County opened in 1970 in order to to provide programming and events that help to satisfy the intellectual curiosity of community members with an interest in African American art, history, and culture. The museum is the only museum of African American history on Long Island and offers a series of rotating exhibits showcasing local and national African American artists. In addition, the museum houses the African Atlantic Genealogy Society, which provides workshops and individual research access and instruction in family genealogy.

The site offers photos and information on past and current exhibits as well as general information about the museum for prospective visitors. The site appears to be under construction and possibly will feature upcoming exhibits and items from the museum's permanent collection in the future.
