    Was founded in 1974 as a part of the Special Collections at Bishop College, a Historically Black Uni that closed in 1988. See accomplishments by African Americans in the past: http://bet.us/BHM

    Home to one of the largest displays of African-American folk art and historic materials in the Southwest, this museum is built in the shape of a cross.
