Where there is no vision,
the people shall perish.
To educate visitors about the history and culture of African Americans in the rural communities of South Louisiana through the collection, preservation, and interpretation of art, artifacts, and historic buildings.
- Restoration of historic buildings related to African American history and culture
- Preservation of the museum collection
We envision the River Road African American Museum (RRAAM) as America’s most recognized institution dedicated to education and the interpretation of slavery and freedom.
