Repository description (extant): The West Virginia Center for African-American Arts & Culture, Inc. is a non-profit organization established to provide an enhanced cultural learning experience for all visitors. We are a diverse group of individuals with over twenty years of service through organizational community involvement. We share a belief in cultural and ethnic diversity: the embodiment of our multicultural society. We believe that inclusion, full and fair participation develops instinctive learning to discover similarities in our differences. This process contributes to our growth and the continued responsibility to learn the value of mutual reliance.
During years of residence in the State of West Virginia, the social and informational landscape of the African American has constantly changed; therefore an emphasis will be placed on this fragmented community.
