Founded in 1965, the Charles H. Wright Museum houses over 35,000 artifacts and archival materials — and a vision of a world in which the adversity and achievement of African American
history inspire everyone toward greater understanding, acceptance and unity! It is home to the Blanche Coggin Underground Railroad Collection, Harriet Tubman Museum, Coleman
A. Young, and Sheffield Collections (a repository of documents of the labor movement in Detroit). This tour includes a one hour docent-led, mind-opening, life-changing exploration and
celebration of African American history and culture. View The Ford Freedom Rotunda and the Ring of Genealogy. Afterward, take an hour on your own, to experience the museum’s 22,000
square foot, interactive core exhibit And Still We Rise, the largest single exhibition on African American history in existence.Photography is prohibited.
