Welcome to LATIBAH Collard Green Museum

Visit this History Museum that is comprised of a collection of installations, exhibits, artifacts of fine art and cultural history.  You will be captivated as you view the life-size, ‘slices of life’ that depict African-Americans as they have strived for survival in a developing “civil” society.

Experience the museum and be emotionally moved by the visual representations that cover centuries of significant historical eras from the enslavement of Africans through the American systems of slavery, reconstruction, and integration to the 44th President of the United States of America.
