Founded by homesteaders, cowboys, and soldiers, Tucson's African American community has a long and proud history that has contributed much to Tucson's rich heritage. These pioneers built neighborhoods, established churches and businesses, and fought to end discrimination and prejudice. Their descendants are leaders today in business, education, government and the arts.

This exhibit documents the history of Tucson's African American community, sharing the stories, photographs and memories of some of its members. It also brings forward some of the experiences of African Americans in the U. S. Southwest.

African Americans living in the greater Tucson area and generally in the U.S. Southwest are welcome to contact us to contribute new information and resources. Send an email to prnteyes@email.arizona.edu
