The mission of the Clemson Area African American Museum is to collect and showcase the historical achievements of local African Americans in the Greater Clemson Area by serving as a resource center.

 

In August 2007, a diverse group of local residents, along with graduates from the former Calhoun Elementary School and volunteers from Clemson University, joined together to establish the Clemson Area African American Museum.

 

The museum is dedicated to becoming a better and stronger member of the community, as we continue to focus on our core values and goals, grow membership, and work closer with our local schools and civic leaders.
