African American Cultural and Historical Museum
The African American Cultural & Historical Museum of Washtenaw County's goal is to document and display our local cultural arts, history and contributions. With a robust collection of artifacts, documents, photographs and oral histories, these items will be preserved and presented in exhibits. Two of the museum's most prized artifacts are a gourd doll made by Karmen Brown, a descendant of Asher and Catherine Aray, and a doll that belonged to the great grand daughter of Asher and Catherine Aray. The Arrays, along with their neighbors, were well-known and documented conductors on the Underground Railroad.
