Palm Beach County African Diaspora Historical and Cultural Society, Inc. (PBCADHCS) presents the Community Museum Design Charrette May 28-May 30, 2020 1:00pm-3:30pm EST each day.

West Palm Beach, FL – May 2020 – PBCADHCS announced that it will be hosting its first ever Community Museum Design Charrette. Palm Beach County African Diaspora Historical and Cultural Society, Inc., in conjunction with representatives from Palm Beach County School District, is in the process of repurposing a segregation-era school building, formerly known as Roosevelt High School, to include a museum, new academic programming, and other components. PBCADHCS' mission is to empower, affirm, and connect all people of the African Diaspora. Through collaboration with local partners and community agencies, student and public programs will be provided that support research, exhibition, and historic preservation.

This Community Museum Design Charrette is an open process that provides all interested community members an opportunity to participate in reviewing the project goals and design concepts. The Charrette is a collaborative planning process that harnesses the talents and energies of all interested parties to create and support a feasible plan. Key community stakeholders will continue to be identified and contacted for their much- desired input. The charrette is structured to receive community input on the project and its many design components. Those opinions about the proposed look of the institution will be translated into actionable steps throughout the organizational planning and preliminary design process.

Palm Beach County African Diaspora Historical and Cultural Society, Inc. is encouraging the community to take advantage of this event to make your voice heard and learn how you can contribute your thoughts, oral histories, and artifacts to PBCADHCS. About the PBCADHCS:

The Board of the Palm Beach County African Diaspora Historical and Cultural Society Inc. was formed as the vehicle to operate a Black History Museum to be created on the campus of The Historic Roosevelt High School. The board includes representatives from multiple legacy organizations that have worked individually and collectively to share the history of the African Diaspora in Palm Beach County. The true story of OUR history must be told.
