Check out this great video and stop by the Museum to see our wonderful Black History Exhibit.
The Plano African American Museum is nestled in the historic Douglass Community, one of the most diverse cities in Texas. The Museum was initially formed in 2002 and celebrated its soft open June 17, 2023.
Our mission is to tell the story of the fortitude it took to endure the hardships of slavery, the commitment to the dream of freedom, and the many citizens that helped along the way. Our story is America's story.
Join us at the Museum on Saturday, February 3, 2024 from 2 - 4 PM to meet and hear from the artist himself, Jas Mardis. Come and hear the inspiration and meaning of the quilts on display. Each one is a story of its own. First Squares and Old Crowns are samples of the early work of Jas Mardis as a child intertwined with some of his adult pieces creating a masterpiece.
The Plano African American Museum relies on support from a wide range of local and national sources. There are many ways you can grow and preserve our authentic collections for future generations.
