On Saturday, February 29, 2020, The Legacy Center aka “The Black House” hosted the Black History Month Closeout Celebration with The African American Cultural Heritage Collection Museum Exhibit. The Closeout Celebration was the last stop on the calendar for Black History Month for the collection. It’s founder, Eric Majette, Jr. finished up his historic 2020 Black History Sacred Sites and Exhibit Tour with “The Black House” family, curating a once in a lifetime intimate experience with extremely rare African American artifacts and memorabilia. While doing some routed black history exhibits Eric Majette, Jr. was inspired to include a pilgrimage to some of the most sacred black history sites of our ancestors. Over the course of two and a half weeks between doing exhibits for schools and the Historic exhibition with the Nation of Islam for their 2020 Saviour’s Day, he visited and paid homage to some of our most valued and adored ancestors. The Black House’s Closeout Celebration was the last stop on this historic tour. The tour featured over 200 pieces of Black History Artifacts celebrating the close out of the 400th anniversary of the African American sojourn in America.
