2018 June Research Trip

LAAAGS members took a Research Trip to the Charles H. Wright
Museum of African American History in Detroit on June 30th. Members
attending: Gary and Ruby Wilkes, Jessica Trotter, and Mike and Willye
Bryan. The museum visit was an excellent opportunity to see a great
historical presentation of the African American experience from Mother
Africa, through the Middle Passage to the U.S. and Caribbean Islands.
The curation culminates into present day U.S. history. This was a
memorable trip and recommended by all that attended! The day was made
even more enjoyable by a trip to Detroit's Eastern Market!
Current Officers for 2019
