About California African American Museum

The California African American Museum (CAAM) is dedicated to the history and culture of African Americans, particularly the African American community in California.

Combining exhibits of art, such as its collection of masks from around West Africa, with historic artefacts, the California African American Museum aims to tell the story of this community and its heritage.

One of the main exhibits at the California African American Museum is called the "African American Journey West" and explores the journey from western Africa to America’s west coast.
