Spotlight on: African American Museums

In order to facilitate research and teaching on understudied aspects of African-American religious history, we will, on occasion, profile useful web sites on a particular theme. This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of museums but, rather, a selection of those with a presence on the web. And while none of these museums focus on African-American religion in particular, their websites provide a useful window on approaches to doing public history.
