About Our Museum
The mission of the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia (BHMVA) is to provide, develop, and partner, in the creation of educational resources, services, and opportunities to promote and advance understanding of the history and culture of Black people and African Americans in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
We do this by telling the inspirational stories that are often untold and or forgotten. We present these stories in the full context of American history so that there is a greater understanding of our history, leading to a more diverse and inclusive society.
