The African American Heritage Society, Inc. was founded September 12,1990 as a 501(c) 3 organization. Our mission is to preserve, promote, educate and integrate African American history, heritage, culture and diversity in Pensacola and the greater Gulf Coast Region and to promote cultural tourism.
Through quality programming, the African American Heritage Society ("the Society") has offered retrospective exhibits in the visual arts and humanities, performing arts programs, as well as educational lectures, all highlighting a broad spectrum of the African American unique and creative influence and contributions to American life.
The Sankofa bird is part of our logo because it reminds us that we must continue to move forward as we remember our past.
